Welcome to the next event from the Health Talks series – health, life sciences and entrepreneurship talks organized by Aalto University, Health Design, Kuopio Health, OuluHealth, Terkko Health Hub and Upgraded – Health Startup Association of Finland.


Artificial intelligence-based applications can bring a number of benefits to the health sector: they can streamline processes, speed up clinical decision-making, lighten staff workloads, and bring efficiency and accuracy to diagnosis.

Another perspective considers, how can we measure the effectiveness of artificial intelligence-based applications and the benefits of artificial intelligence?

During the webinar, we will look at artificial intelligence-based solutions from three different perspectives:
1. Artificial intelligence applications in healthcare
2. An ethical perspective on artificial intelligence-based applications
3. Effectiveness assessment of AI-based solutionsHow:
