The ITU/WHO Focus Group on artificial intelligence for health (FG-AI4H) works in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) to establish a standardized assessment framework for the evaluation of AI-based methods for health, diagnosis, triage or treatment decisions. Participation in the FG-AI4H is free of charge and open to all. The group was established by ITU-T Study Group 16 at its meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 9-20 July 2018.
The FG scope and general process are described in a
commentary in The Lancet and a
white paper. The documentation of all previous meetings can be found on the
collaboration site (free
ITU account needed; see
instructions for help).
In addition to
working groups and
topic groups, the
new FG-AI4H Ad-hoc Group on “Digital Technologies for COVID Health Emergencies” (AHG-DT4HE) reviews the role of AI (and other digital technologies) in combatting COVID-19 throughout an epidemic’s life cycle. Through this case study, we will learn how to best leverage digital technologies to successfully manage future health emergencies.

Topic groups (TGs) investigate use cases within specific health domains with corresponding AI/ML tasks. Currently there are 13 active groups and seven groups starting their activities.
