AI and Modern Medicine

How is Artificial Intelligence (AI) being integrated into modern medicine?’


Tuesday 15 February 2022, 17:30. What are some of the ethical and legal challenges of implementing artificial intelligence in a clinical setting? And what are the opportunities from a clinical point of view? How can we make best use of current technologies to improve screening and diagnostics? Should we be intimidated by AI or embrace what it can offer in the medical field? This panel was designed for those curious about these and similar questions.

Baptiste Vasey speaking at the panel.

MCR Speaker: Baptiste Vasey

Baptiste is a DPhil candidate with the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, and a Berrow Foundation Lord Florey scholar at Lincoln College. He obtained a Master of Medicine from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and subsequently passed the Swiss Federal Medical Licensing Examination. Following graduation, he was awarded a Mercator Fellowships on International Affairs to investigate the potential of computer-aided decision support to improve access to appropriate healthcare in low-resource settings. As part of this fellowship, he spent three months in Burkina Faso working on IeDA, Western Africa’s largest mHealth project, joined the WHO Global Coordination Mechanism on the prevention and control of NCDs and collaborated with the MIT Gehrke Lab, investigating biomarkers for the detection and classification of dengue fever. Baptiste’s research focuses on computer-aided decision support to improve the management of patients presenting with postoperative complications. His interest in artificial intelligence (AI) being used as adjunct, rather than replacement, to human intelligence also led him to investigate how AI systems should be evaluated in clinical settings. He is currently leading the development of the DECIDE-AI, a reporting guideline for the early-stage clinical evaluation of AI-based decision support systems.
