Open Medical Data - The European Strategy: a waste of time or due diligence?
On the third episode of the Delta Dialog, we discussed open medical data in Europe as well as overall AI. Since the technology is relatively new and rules and regulations as well as policymaking takes a long time in Europe, it seems that the actual implementation of open medical data and the widespread use of AI will be slowed down. Policies such as the European Health Data Space, the Data Act, the GDPR and the new AI Act need major attention within the AI and open medical data space as discussed within the episode.
