Inclusion

Within the more general areas of Medicine and Health, social inclusion involves all societal issues concerning the application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Health is becoming a very data-centric domain, mediated by computers in networked settings. In turn, contemporary AI is permeating the society at large, and medicine and health are part of it. This means that AI and Health could go hand in hand, but it also means that we must put societal issues and social inclusion at the heart of AI and ML applications in these fields. The agenda in our area will endeavour to investigate these timely issues through research that puts human requirements at the heart of data science.
