We are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the symposium held jointly by the Osaka and Oxford teams of the AIDE Project on March 22, 2023.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the more than 200 people who attended the symposium, both online and at the venue.
The symposium featured reports from various perspectives on “AI technologies in healthcare” in Japan and the U.K. with simultaneous interpretation.
A highlight of the symposium was, without doubt, the presentations by members of the Patient and Public Involvement Panel (PPIP), both from Japan and the United Kingdom. The three speakers talked about their motivations for joining the PPIP, what they had learned from their participation and the meaning of that participation. They shared their unique perspectives as patients and citizens.
In addition, Professor Kokuryo, who is the program supervisor of the JST RISTEX Human-Information Technology Ecosystem (HITE) research area that AIDE project is funded by, offered his comments on the presentations and the contribution of the work to the research field.
Some of them suggested that collaboration with various countries, not only Japan and the U.K., might be possible, and the AIDE project will continue to research to serve as a model for such collaboration.
