About Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence at Bournemouth University

Recent algorithmic and technological advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and wearable technology have resulted in its increased adoption in digital health solutions. Big technology companies and start-ups are increasingly employing AI to solve a range of problems for patients and hospitals. These innovative AI solutions will help diagnose disease, recommend treatment plans, recommend assistive technologies, detect vital signs with no specialised equipment, and more.

The UK government has highlighted the importance of AI in the healthcare industry, with the recent (2018) announcement to give £50m in funding to develop AI products to improve diagnosis of diseases including cancer.

The aim of this interdisciplinary course is to build a workforce of AI specialists in the area of digital health. Our graduates will understand the challenges in designing and deploying AI driven digital health products in an industry where regulation, responsibility, and legal implications are particularly important, and understand the requirements for bringing AI solutions to the digital health market to ensure they are safe, effective, and ethical.
