From Genomes to GPS: socially responsible research and the future of data-driven medicine

Richard Milne delivered this lunchtime seminar on ethical considerations around AI and data-driven medicine, touching on Your DNA, Your Say and his new project, SPACE
9th December 2019

Event description:

Dr Richard Milne from the Society and Ethics Research Group will discuss the social and ethical questions associated with the collection, sharing and use of biomedical data at scale.

The future of medicine is increasingly described in terms of ability of big data analytics to provide new approaches to disease detection, diagnosis and treatment. These data may come from genome sequencing, health records, or from a range of digital sources. Their use involves considering what it means to conduct research in a way that merits public trust. In this seminar, Dr Richard Milne from the Society and Ethics Research Group will discuss the social and ethical questions associated with the collection, sharing and use of biomedical data at scale. He will report findings from the global Your DNA, Your Say survey about genomic data sharing, which covers 37,000 members of the public from 22 countries and discuss ongoing work that looks at the challenges associated with the development of data-driven medicine.
