Lorenzo Cristofaro will lecture on AI in Healthcare in a webinar

11 July 2024 – Webinar online

The extraordinary developments in artificial intelligence in recent years hold the promise of facilitating advances in many different fields, and healthcare is no exception.

The three projects presenting in this webinar (SmartCHANGE together with AI4HF and Data Tools4 Heart) have all been funded by the EU to carry out exciting research in the use of AI in areas ranging from chronic heart failure to lifestyle improvement in youth.

However, the approval of the Artificial Intelligence Act Act (the final text that will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union is available here) on 13 March 2024 by the European Parliament reminds us that healthcare – surely the most human-centric sector of all – needs regulation in order to ensure our safetyprivacy, and general well-being.

The AI Act introduces a risk-based approach that tries to strike a balance between necessary regulation and innovation. In addition, it interacts with existing legislation such as the European Medical Device Regulation, which has governed the certification of digital health instruments for several years.

Lorenzo Cristofaro will lecture on “The Impact of the AI Act on the construction development of an AI-powered cardiology data toolbox”.
