The Northern Netherlands wants to be Europe’s testing ground in the field of artificial intelligence

It is important when using artificial intelligence in healthcare, Derks explains, that development takes place together. “We talk about problems together with healthcare providers and patients and only then do we start designing. What technology goes with it, and that also results in a completely different conversation. In this way, together we arrive at a solution that better suits the practice.”

And there are suggestions, it turns out. Valtes gave a presentation of the prototype at a village collective last week in Hijken. “We spoke to a group of residents aged approximately 75 to 80. They were positive about the possibilities of the box, but what if someone has fallen and the son lives 30 kilometers away? The solution could then be that there is something with the neighbors. is arranged. So you want to further develop the system with people.”
