Ageism in artificial intelligence (AI) for health: new policy brief now available

The UN Global report on ageism has a simple but powerful message: ageism is everywhere and harmful, but can be combatted.
A new policy brief published by the World Health Organization (WHO) now highlights how the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in public health and medicine can benefit older people, but only by avoiding ageism in their design, implementation, and use.
In the brief, policy makers as well as all stakeholders who work with AI including care professionals can learn more about the risks of ageism in AI and how they can be addressed to maximise benefits for older people.
