‘Responsible AI Futures’ Hybrid Seminar Series – Dr Fiona Smith

April 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Can artistic approaches help invite more voices into discussions about AI in Healthcare?

The potential benefits of utilising AI technology in healthcare are vast but there are important practical, technological, ethical, and legal implications that need to be addressed in order to safeguard patients. Doctor, AI researcher and artist Fiona Smith is particularly interested in how we can ethically curate the diverse datasets that are required to make accurate fair models. Smith will be talking about how these themes informed her latest exhibition “The BOX” which premiered at the 2024 Edinburgh Science Festival. “The BOX” is the outcome of the Creator Residency ‘STEAM Imaging V’, hosted by Fraunhofer MEVIS, in collaboration with the Institute for Design Informatics, the International Fraunhofer Talent School Bremen & the School Center Walle supported by Ars Electronica.


Dr Fiona Smith is a medical doctor and an UKRI funded PhD student in the Biomedical AI CDT, School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. Alongside her research and clinical work, she is interested in the use of artistic approaches to highlight complex medical, ethical and social issues.
