STANDING Together

Developing STANdards for data Diversity, INclusivity and Generalisability



To build AI healthcare technologies which benefit all patients, we need datasets which represent the diverse range of people they are intended to be used in. Unfortunately, health datasets often do not adequately represent minority populations.


We believe health datasets should be curated with inclusivity and diversity in mind. To ensure AI healthcare technologies are supported by adequately representative data, we are developing standards on how AI datasets should be composed (‘who’ is represented in the data) and transparency around the data composition (‘how’ they are represented).
