8th ITU/WHO Workshop on AI for Health

The Eighth International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and World Health Organization (WHO) Workshop on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Health was held on January 21, followed by the Eighth Meeting of the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) Focus Group on AI for Health (FG-AI4H), on January 22-24, in Brasilia, Brazil. The events were hosted by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), in collaboration with the ITU Regional Office for the Americas.

Egypt, represented by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), participated remotely in the events.
The ITU/WHO Workshop provided a platform for researchers, engineers, practitioners, entrepreneurs and policy-makers to discuss standardization opportunities and challenges for the assessment of AI for health solutions, and to identify use cases and data required for the evaluation and validation with open benchmarks.
The FG-AI4H Meeting, however, included an evaluation of the progress of the Focus Group toward its mandate, to develop a platform for the standardized assessment of AI for health. In addition, the feasibility of new use cases were considered, and overarching themes were discussed.
