Exploring algorithms, data analytics and regulatory governance
This Wellcome Trust funded project involves undertaking a series of activities with regulatory, computing and digital technology innovators, which are designed to explore the ways in which Big Data and Machine Learning Algorithms are transforming the healthcare and professional regulatory landscapes.
Two ‘horizon scanning’ questions drive its activity:
i. What new opportunities for collaboration between the public, professional, technological and financial sectors are emerging in the healthcare and regulatory spheres as a consequence of contemporary developments in machine learning and data science?
ii. In what ways could regulatory performance management and disciplinary tribunal processes and decision-making in the future become partially (or even wholly) subject to automated regulatory algorithms overseen by artificially intelligent neural networks?
The project will publish a report of its activity in February 2019. If you are interested in receiving a copy of the report please contact Dr Marty Chamberlain.
