Speaker information

Prof Hugh Montgomery, Professor of Intensive Care Medicine,, UCL, Prof Hugh Montgomery obtained a first-class degree in cardiorespiratory physiology/neuropharmacology before graduating from the Middlesex Hospital Medical school in 1987. Hugh obtained his research degree (MD) in 1997, and is Professor of intensive Care at UCL, where he directed the Institute for Human Health and Performance. Hugh's interest has been in the use of environmental stressors in the exploration of human (patho)physiology – often using a genetic approach. He was the first to discover a 'gene for human fitness'. He has published over 300 scientific articles. Hugh also has a strong interest in environmental impacts on health, and in climate change in particular.

Applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence offer huge hope to healthcare. But there are also challenges. Hugh will address some of these - specifically the challenges of teaching using misinformation, and then, briefly, societal issues to implementation.
