Datasets for healthcare AI should...

Our Mission


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