DISCOVERING HIDDEN SPACES IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND HEALTHCARE
PART ONE | DINING ROOM 3
Attendees are pre-grouped in cross-disciplinary tables, mix of the six stakeholders and 10 ‘spaces’ asking the following question:
“What does a breakthrough in Artificial Intelligence + Health look like in 10 years? Why?”
Attendees are asked to individually brainstorm on those ideas, and write their best one down in a format sheet given to them.
Discussion is then conducted in pre-assigned multi-stakeholder tables:
Attendees are asked to present their individual ideas to their table, as well as 5 extra spaces filtered by the Proto Ventures team to consider.
Attendees are tasked with forming/writing their opinion on each evaluated idea (in a provided format) and to pick the best breakthrough ideas or hidden spaces from each table to share with everyone else in the forum.
A desired top written idea should include:
- What is the breakthrough AI & Health product/service?
- How does a patient, clinician, insurance and/or other stakeholders benefit directly from it?
- Who will pay for it and how?
- What has to be done to prove this works?
- What is the clearest exit strategy of a venture pursuing this?
Report sheets are handed over the Forum staff.
EXTENDED TABLE IDEA “REPORT OUT” WITH MODERATED DISCUSSION
PART TWO | DINING ROOM 3
In part two, we will swap and verify hidden spaces. Same tables are then given the top concept of another table and ask to verify it in depth.
Each table reports out on their top idea and moderates a discussion with other tables (verbal Q&A format). Report sheets are handed to each attendee to write any other comments or thoughts not generated during the Q&A. We really want attendees to teach us how to pick prime ideas in AI and health.
- Discussions (Q&A) topics should try to touch on the following:
- What assumptions did the reporting table make in order for this idea to work?
- What would need to be true for this idea to work? (policy, tech, data, funding, etc.)
- Anything that could refine the original idea in order to accelerate the implementation/deployment/etc.?
