III Technical Subproject

Since many years, the Speech and Language Technology Lab of DFKI addresses topics in the biomedical domain, as for instance processing of clinical text to ease the access of information or the prediction of particular events using a combination of structured and unstructured data. Within joint projects together with Charité, multiple technologies and prototypes have been developed. Within the vALID project, DFKI together with its partners will examine future interaction scenarios of AI systems within medical staff and patients, particularly in context of ethical, legal and social aspects. In addition to already existing solutions, which have been developed in other projects, we will create new mock-ups to explore future human-AI interactions scenarios. One of the goals is the development of requirements of future AI and language technologies in medical context, such as explainability or transparency to maximize the decision making sovereignty of medics and data sovereignty of patients.
