Trustworthy autonomous systems to support healthcare experiences

This project will explore how trustworthy autonomous systems can support value-based joint decision making in healthcare settings. Work will focus on two areas in particular – treatment decision made in clinical settings (context: oesophageal cancer) and monitoring the general health and wellbeing of non-clinical users in the home (to include vulnerable groups).  The aim of this work is to integrate understandings of attitudes towards the use of artificial intelligence decision-making across the potential spectrum of use, including how factors surround trust and personal values affect a broad range of users – healthcare professionals, patients, carers and other service users.

This project is funded by the UKRI TAS Hub (Agile research programme) and led by Dr Liz Dowthwaite.
