About this Event

Complementary lunch will be provided between 13:00 - 14:00 PM, in the Royal Fort House Verdon-Smith room.

Health Data and Personal Care Robots

AI-driven systems require large amounts of data for their development and training. This raises legal difficulties around personal data due to the limitations imposed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Restrictions are especially strict when it comes to health data, which is considered a form of sensitive data. The announced European Health Data Space Regulation, in turn, is advertised as a legal mechanism to aid easy and efficient access and sharing of health data. This talk will untangle the joint intervention of these two acts in the development of AI tools.

Please look at our Code of Conduct which we follow at all virtual and in-person events.
