DeepMind Health was set up to build mobile tools and use AI research to help get patients from test to treatment as quickly and accurately as possible. Dominic is the Clinical Lead at DMH, making sure that all the teams work is driven by input from clinicians and patients, and backed by robust clinical evidence. He is an Honorary Clinical Lecturer in Surgery at Imperial College London, where he previously worked as an academic general surgeon. Dominic's research interests lie in digital health, health policy and behavioural economics. As part of his PhD, he co-authored the Cabinet Office Mindspace report, which served as the initial operating framework for the Behavioural Insights Team, established by UK Prime Minister David Cameron. He has published research in the Lancet, BMJ and Health Affairs and contributed to sessions at the World Economic Forum and Tech Crunch Disrupt. The clinical app company Dominic co-founded, Hark, was acquired by DeepMind in early 2016 and has been incorporated into the Streams clinical system being deployed in NHS hospitals.
DeepMind, a world leader in artificial intelligence, is on a scientific mission to push the boundaries of AI, developing programs that can learn to solve any complex problem without needing to be taught how. DeepMind is also building real-world applications of AI technology in healthcare and is working on mobile tools and AI research to help get patients from test to treatment as quickly and accurately as possible. This session will cover the progress DeepMind has made in delivering AI-enabled care that is both practical and smart.
