Miika Leminen, Head of AI and Analytics at HUS Helsinki University Hospital, shared his key lessons on the Data Insiders podcast.
When you want AI to bring real benefits, involve the end-users from the first steps on. “You have to have a clear vision of the project and share that vision with the business professionals. They will tell if the application would work in real life.”
“We don’t have separate people in our team considering ethics, but it’s built into everything,” Leminen emphasizes. It all comes back to collaboration with the hands-on professionals: they are the ones thinking “what happens next”, after the AI has done its job with data.
The better you understand the background behind laws and regulation, the better you can make use of them in your projects. “We benefit from the medical device regulation quite a lot. It defines our development work and our quality criteria. We don’t take it as an add-on bureaucracy only, but as a tool and advice.”
A practical example of collaboration is HUS’s advanced data lake solution offered to other public hospitals across Finland. Furthermore, Miika Leminen is currently leading a 10 million EU project AICCELERATE. The partner hospitals across Europe develop scalable models that address data sharing, integration, privacy, and ethics.
