I am delighted to report that my ERC Consolidator Grant on Inclusive Artificial Intelligence for Accessible Medical Imaging Across Resource-Limited Settings (AIMIX) started on 01 January 2023. For the kick off meeting, my team and I met amazing and inspiring healthcare workers and researchers in Kenya. We also visited local clinical centres in rural Kenya, which will be instrumental to implement innovative, inclusive, and accessible AI tools in low-resource settings.
Karim Lekadir, Director of BCN-AIM, Ramon y Cajal researcher at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the UB, received 2.2 million euros to conduct the research study Inclusive Artificial Intelligence for Accessible Medical Imaging Across Resource-Limited Settings (AIMIX). “The aim of the project is to study how artificial intelligence can adjust to the needs and features of local populations with limited resources and high healthcare demands, such as those in Africa”
