Developing Guidelines for Responsible Generative AI in Healthcare

The Coalition for Health AI (CHAI) is a non-profit tasked with developing concrete guidelines and criteria for responsibly developing and deploying AI applications in healthcare. This session introduces CHAI, how it works with the US government and across the healthcare community, what it has built that you can use today, and how you can get involved. Examples will focus on Generative AI applications in healthcare – including the specific risks and best practices to pay attention to when building them, including John Snow Labs’ contributions in the areas of fairness, equity, and bias mitigation.
