Presentation
Leveraging Data-Driven Advanced Analytics and Artificial Intelligence Technologies to Address Social and Behavioral Determinants for Health Equity

Overview
This presentation will describe the role of data-driven advanced analytics leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in providing insights for health equity. The talk will include current use of these AI-driven technologies, including tools that were implemented to address the COVID-19 pandemic. These technologies are being used in pre-clinical research, drug discovery, developing clinical pathways, risk-predictive algorithms, population-level surveillance, and analytics, among others. The drivers of these efforts include comprehensive and massive amounts of data from heterogenous sources. The technologies have tremendous potential to enhance current precision medicine and health equity efforts, but it also has potential to exacerbate existing health disparities without thoughtful, transparent, and inclusive approach, that includes addressing bias in the technology design, development, and implementation. Discussion will address applications for social and behavioral determinants of health. Finally, the presentation will include potential opportunities for collaborative research partnerships to advance efforts in the behavioral and social sciences community.
