In November 2018, 340 people came together at Bristol City Hall to hear about Artificial Intelligence in Health and Care.
The event, hosted by Bristol Health Partners and co-developed with John Kellas and Sophie Taysom, set out to explore just some of the opportunities and challenges posed by artificial intelligence in health and care.
As well as co-developing the event, we produced a pre-brief outlining where we are in the UK, and in Bristol, on these issues, with a clear focus on cutting through the hype.
For the event, we produced a publicly available briefing, AI in health and care: How do we get it right?
- Dr Ben Goldacre, science journalist and Chair of Government’s new health technology advisory board
- Dr Natalie Banner, Lead – Understanding Patient Data
- Deborah El-Sayed, Director of Transformation, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group
And the emerging themes included:
- The language of AI and public attitudes
- The importance of data
- The local context

From here we produced a number of suggested way forward, culminating in a successful event held with analysts from across health, local authorities and academic organisations to explore how we can advance analytics locally.
