Establishment of the Artificial Intelligence and Medical Devices expert group
NEN is setting up an expert group that will focus on the subject of artificial intelligence (AI) and medical devices. The aim is to connect different parties from different perspectives. An online information meeting will be organized on Thursday 11 March 2021 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
In 2021, the new European legislation and regulations for medical devices, the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), will come into effect. For medical devices that use AI, this poses a number of major issues. For example, clinical research, clinical validation, data use, algorithm bias, interoperability, trust in AI, privacy and ethics.
Expert group AI and Medical Devices
In 2021 NEN aims to bring the various initiatives and solutions together by establishing an expert group AI and Medical Devices. This expert group aims to connect experts, organisations, institutions and initiatives from all perspectives. A platform is offered where (international) knowledge and experiences about AI and medical devices come together.
Discussions in the sector clearly show the need for an overview of the various initiatives at national, European and international level. And the need of Dutch experts to also be part of the international network. The issue turns out to be a challenge, in which connection of both initiatives and experts proves important.
Connecting experts and initiatives starts with an information meeting. An online meeting will take place on Thursday 11 March 2021 from 10.00 to 12.00 in which the expert group will be explained in various presentations. In addition, the participants will discuss the scope and objectives for now and the coming period. In this meeting, NEN will address questions about planning, establishment and its own role in this initiative.
Registration for this meeting is possible until March 9, 2021 via NEN Events.
