The System Planning Branch (SPB) within the Department of Health is providing two health consumer representatives with the opportunity to participate in the project steering committee for the development of an artificial intelligence plan.

System Planning Branch is seeking consumers with experience and/or knowledge in artificial intelligence or digital health to contribute to the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) within the Queensland health system. The project steering committee provides leadership, guidance and direction for planning and development of the Queensland Health Artificial Intelligence Plan. While Queensland Health continues to deliver safe, effective, and innovative healthcare, it is imperative to adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of technology with a particular focus on artificial intelligence (AI).AI in Healthcare

AI has become an increasingly popular topic in healthcare. It refers to the use of computer algorithms to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as learning from data, recognising patterns, and making decisions. AI is already being used in a variety of ways in healthcare, including disease diagnosis, drug development, and personalised treatment plans. One of the main benefits of AI is its ability to process large amounts of data quickly and accurately, which can lead to faster and more accurate diagnoses. However, there are also potential risks associated with AI in healthcare, such as privacy concerns and the potential for bias in algorithmic decision-making.
