Sign Montréal Declaration Responsible AI
January 11, 2019
The life sciences and health technologies (LSHT) cluster recognizes that artificial intelligence (AI) could have very positive repercussions on healthcare, from medical diagnosis to healthcare administration. It also plays a powerful role in accelerating the development of health therapies and the creation of various initiatives. In view of supporting and contributing to these initiatives, Montréal InVivo has been bringing together, since the summer of 2018, twenty-some industry, institutional, academic and government stakeholders from the community to form a strategy review committee focused on artificial intelligence (AI) in LSHT: the AI Strategic Committee in LSHT.
Montréal InVivo and its AI Strategic Committee in LSHT believes firmly in the importance of ethical and responsible principles in the field of artificial intelligence in health. As such, Montréal InVivo is signing the Montreal Declaration for a Responsible Development of Artificial Intelligence and plans to apply and respect these ethical principles directions when developing initiatives related to AI in LSHT.
At the same time, Montréal InVivo strongly encourages companies, organizations and stakeholders from the life sciences and health technologies community that use or plan to use AI in their LSHT technologies or activities to also sign it.
