Event description

Description


Artificial intelligence (AI), or the ability of computer algorithms to carry out “smart” tasks, is transforming many aspects of modern life. These tools are beginning to be applied to environmental health in areas such as characterizing sources of pollution, predicting chemical hazards and toxicity, estimating human exposures, and identifying health outcomes. However, there are questions about the transparency, reproducibility, and interpretability of the algorithms. This meeting will discuss different types of AI that can be applied to environmental health.

Held in Washington D.C. and webcast live, this workshop organized by the standing committee on the Use of Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions will provide an overview of AI and discuss the differences between AI and other mathematical and statistical models. The workshop will also have interactive discussions about the potential promise and perils related to the use of AI predictions for environmental health decisions.
