AI in Health
The application of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to the field of health represents a major opportunity for the UK. AI is a powerful tool that can be applied across industry sectors to solve specific challenges. The application of these tools in Health requires a mutual understanding between the AI and Health communities.
Innovate UK KTN’s objective is to develop specific community building activities in the individual sub-specialisms associated with Health and, specifically, to bring together these communities via an events programme to build a coherent sector.
Our goal is to help you form powerful collaborations across the Health and AI community in the UK, and turn your ambitious ideas into real-world solutions. We use our deep expertise and diverse connections to offer you direct support, and link you to relevant funding opportunities and potential partners.
