Panel with Open Q&A: Navigating the Data and Ethical Hurdles Surrounding Generative AI

As the healthcare industry continues to navigate the adoption of generative AI technologies into healthcare workflows, unprecedented, yet crucial, discussion surrounding: liability for model outputs, data privacy and regulation arise. This panel discussion will delve into these topics and explore how we can ensure the ethical integration of generative AI into healthcare while prioritizing patient interests.

  • Where are the main data bottlenecks in the integration of generative AI in healthcare systems today?
  • How essential will training data be to increase trust and credibility in generative AI models, and what are the techniques to overcome bias?
  • What current regulatory framework is in place to support the adoption of generative AI into health systems, and who is the governing body?
  • Who will accept liability and responsibility for the outputs of generative AI models in healthcare, and who is at fault if something is incorrect?
  • How will we be able to ensure patient’s data privacy and autonomy over how their data is used, while experiencing the benefits that could come with generative AI e.g. personalized medicine?

Opportunities and Future Vision


Keynote Presentation: Generative AI and Healthcare: Purpose and Promise

  • A deep dive into what generative AI is and what this means for healthcare,
  • Identifying the purpose and promise of generative AI in healthcare,
  • A look into the current advancements within generative AI for healthcare this year.

Case Study: Generative AI: A Paradigm Shift in Biomedical and Clinical Natural Language Processing

The utilization of natural language processing (NLP) technology has become increasingly important in the biomedical and clinical fields, as much of the valuable information is embedded within narratives found in biomedical literature and electronic health records (EHRs). From rule-based algorithms to advanced deep learning neural networks, various techniques have been employed in biomedical and clinical NLP systems. The advent of large language models (LLMs) and generative artificial intelligence (AI), such as ChatGPT, has generated a great deal of interest in the NLP field. LLMs have revolutionized biomedical and clinical NLP tasks, providing a new paradigm for these tasks by using zero/few-shot learning approaches. However, while these models have shown promise, they also have limitations for direct healthcare applications. This presentation will explore the traditional biomedical and clinical NLP techniques that have been successful in the medical domain, as well as the potential of generative AI and recent research outcomes from Dr. Wang’s team for biomedical and clinical NLP.

Panel with Open Q&A: Future Opportunities: Generative AI in Healthcare

In this concluding panel, speakers explore the future of generative AI in healthcare, and how to navigate the challenges associated with implementing these new technologies, while adapting current healthcare models to facilitate this. There is also opportunity for attendees to have their say, through an open Q&A to the panelists…

  • What will the future of healthcare look like, and will this change current healthcare models?
  • Will generative AI alone solve the current issues facing healthcare, for example: access, health equity, affordability, poorer health outcomes and fragmentation?
  • Are we being realistic with what generative AI can and can’t do for healthcare?
  • How will we pay for Generative AI in Healthcare and will this be part of the value-based care strategy? 
  • Where is the cutting-edge innovation taking place within generative AI for healthcare that interests investors?
