AIDE is a research project that aims to understand the human factors that will help or hinder the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare. It aims to identify how AI is expected to change lives and impact healthcare experience and to determine how concerns might be resolved to promote acceptance and adoption of data-driven technologies.
Researchers will identify where AI systems are currently being used/developed in healthcare settings in Oxford (UK) and Osaka (Japan) and consult with researchers, developers, healthcare employees, patients and others to understand:
Prior experience of AI, current and anticipated use in healthcare, and other valuable applications
How they learn about developments
Factors perceived to influence adoption/implementation
What safeguards, controls or types of engagement would inspire trust.
This will allow us to suggest a platform for sustained dialogue on AI in healthcare.
This work is being led by researchers based at the University of Oxford in collaboration with colleagues at Osaka University. It is supported by UK Research and Innovation’s (UKRI) Fund for International Collaboration (FIC) in a joint UK-Japan initiative (Project Reference ES/T007214/1). In Japan the research is supported through the Institute of Science and Technology (JST) with the aim of "designing a sustainable platform with the involvement of citizens and experts to bring the benefits of AI in healthcare to all."
The project name "AIDE" is an abbreviated version of the English name of project "The Benefits of Ensuring AI in Healthcare for All: Designing a Sustainable Platform for Public and Professional Stakeholder Engagement". The acronym reflects our hope that the project will AID the Engagement of key stakeholders in the increased use of AI technologies in healthcare.
Research is being conducted by members of the Centre for Health, Law and Emerging Technologies at the University of Oxford, and the research team of the Osaka University UNESCO Chair in Global Health and Education, Professor Beverley Yamamoto.
Developing a network of healthcare professionals interested in the development and implementaiton of AI in Oxford
12 May 2021
Researchers in Oxford are meeting with healthcare professionals to develop a network through which we can publicise our research and recruit stakeholders. Please contact us if you would like to be included!
Project teams in Oxford (UK) and Osaka (Japan) meet regularly online to progress AIDE project research. By working together, we learn from one another's experiences and share opportunities for engagement
10 PPIP members and 7 researchers took part in our 2nd Patient and Public Involvement Panel meeting for AIDE (Japan). Participants discussed the expectations and concerns that PPIP members have about the increasing use of AI in healthcare.
On February 23rd, we met with the Advisory Board for AIDE (UK). Updates were provided on PPIP activities, as well as the early results of our scoping review and twitter analysis. The 3 hour online discussion will help shape our research design
