1. AIM-AHEAD for Pacific communities: Exploring artificial intelligence in medicine

Online symposium on Wednesday, Aug. 10. Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders are underrepresented in medical research and health data. How does this impact the use of AI and machine learning in the clinical setting? Native Hawaiians were already disproportionately affected by COVID-19. How can this be addressed and avoided in the future?
