This call is for applications seeking to develop, refine, and evaluate predictive algorithms using artificial intelligence (AI) for health and social care.

Predictive algorithms using AI have the potential to enhance many aspects of health and social care by improving upon the accuracy, efficiency and sustainability of current methods. All health areas and types of technology are eligible under this call. The intervention should have credibility with UK health and social care professionals and ultimately have the potential to improve health-related outcomes. Examples include, but are not limited to:
