National Health Service England to set up Artificial Intelligence lab




The National Health Service England is planning to set up a national artificial intelligence laboratory to enhance the medical care and research facility.

According to the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock said AI has 'enormous power' to improve the health care facilities, and save lives.

The health service has announced £250m on setting up a research lab to boost AI within the health sector.

However, AI will pose new challenges in protecting patient data.

Many AI tools have proven to be game-changer devices, which help doctors at spotting lung cancer, skin cancer, and more than 50 eye conditions from scans.

Meanwhile, there are some tools that are yet to be used routinely across the NHS.

"The power of artificial intelligence to improve medicine, to save lives, to improve the way treatments are done, that power is enormous," Mr. Hancock told BBC News.

"In this country, we've got the opportunity to be one of the leading countries in the world at using this new technology."
