Open AI in health

Making AI research reproducible and open

This Helmholtz AI group works at the intersection of open science, AI and health research. Our research focuses on how (health) AI research is conducted, raise awareness for issues, as well as provide solutions. We use best practices from the medical field and use them to improve AI research and we develop AI methods to improve health research. AI applied to health research offers special challenges (e.g. privacy, ethics, trust), which we take into account throughout all our work.

We value collaboration, transparency, and diversity.
