Artificial Intelligence for Health: ITU and WHO Call for Proposals

The ITU Focus Group on 'AI for Health' (FG-AI4H), created in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), has issued a Call for Proposals to identify compelling use cases of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in strengthening health services and overarching health systems.

The Call for Proposals is soliciting AI use cases and associated datasets in the fields of clinical and public health. Proposals should highlight the motivations behind an 'AI for Health' use case, the value of performance benchmarking in such cases, and the datasets required to train relevant AI algorithms.

The Call for Proposals resulted from the Focus Group's first meeting at WHO Headquarters in Geneva, 25-27 September 2018. Proposals submitted before 7 November 2018 will be considered by the second meeting of the Focus Group in New York City, U.S., 14-16 November 2018.

Access the template for proposals here.
