Explainable AI for Health Lab

The Explainable AI for Health Lab is a collaboration between Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Leiden University Medical Center, and Amsterdam University Medical Centers (AUMC, location AMC).

Clinical decision support based on AI can have great added value for physician and patient alike. AI models can be very powerful, but it is not always easy to explain how they arrive at a certain prediction. This hampers its use for medical applications. LUMC, Amsterdam UMC, and CWI are developing new forms of AI that lead to models that are inherently explainable as much as possible so that physicians and patients can understand why a certain prediction is made.
