Safe Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Healthcare Delivery

Student: Rian Mc Donnell, 2019-2020

Sponsor: Underwriters Laboratories, Northbrook, IL

Working with Underwriters Laboratories, this project is focused on developing a framework associated with the safe commercialisation of AI and ML technologies in the healthcare industry. Underwriters Labs is known for establishing safe guidelines for their industrial partners in a variety of sectors, and hope to repeat this in a new field. The healthcare field is fraught with regulation, and rightly so, therefore developing a general framework that adheres to these for a variety of AI/ML solutions will be challenging. Also creating a level of trust and credibility with the final user is a large challenge with these technologies, so the certification framework that is developed needs to be transparent and give the final user confidence in the product if it is to be successful.
