Our projects

Along with researchers at St George’s University of London, we are leading a half a million pound project on Artificial Intelligence (AI), funded by NHSX, the Health Foundation and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).  The research project uses artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to detect diabetic eye disease and to ensure it works for all. It uses AI technology to analyse retinal images from diabetic patients to prevent vision loss more efficiently and quicker than human specialists. Crucially, the project will develop safeguarding systems to ensure AI performance does not vary across population sub-groups, such as ethnicity or gender. The project will also provide evidence to support the commissioning and deployment of the first potential widespread use of AI within the NHS.
