The February meeting of the Global Digital Health Network was hosted by FHI 360 and explored how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are being incorporated into client-facing digital health applications.  We had three presentations—from Jacaranda Health, FHI 360 and Viamo—that illustrated a continuum of possible uses of AI and ML in place of and in addition to humans to provide individuals with important health information, counseling and support. Despite some early technical difficulties, we managed to connect to all three presenters and have time to spare for some great Q&A! Thanks to the approximately 25 folks who participated in person in Washington, DC and North Carolina and the 40+ people who tuned in remotely.

Because the presentations were extremely rich and we didn’t want anyone to miss out, the summary is longer than usual and is therefore included as a separate attachment. Please do take a look at the full notes and the presentation deck by searching under resources.  

We are taking a break in March but stay tuned for April's monthly meeting announcement, coming soon!
