Overview of the Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives

Our mission is to help ensure that AI-READI and the science we design and conduct works to reduce health disparities caused or perpetuated by AI/ML.

An early outcome to gauge and enhance diverse perspectives is the formation of the AI-READI PEDP Committee with representative(s) from each module.

In its work, the PEDP Committee will assess the current state of AI/ML and precision health approaches, and their impact on health equity, and work with the modules to implement strategies to enhance inclusion of underrepresented and traditionally underemphasized voices at all stages of the project.

Our PEDP Committee is particularly focused on diversity and inclusion with regard to:

  • Insights from a range of academic disciplines
  • Insights from a range of skill levels
  • Insights from diverse geographies and populations (led by ETAI)
