Wellcome Trust

We were commissioned by the Wellcome Trust to examine the ethical, social, and political  implications of the use of AI in health and medical research. We went beyond issues that have already been identified, such as those around the use of patient data and algorithmic transparency, to explore whether these new technologies throw up new ethical issues, or challenge existing ethical principles in new ways. The Wellcome Trust announced £1 million in funding.

Elton John AIDS Foundation

We supported the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s advocacy towards creating an AIDS free future.

Our focus was on overall global funding to fight AIDS as well as the two key risks which threaten to undermine progress in tackling the global epidemic:

– The risk that AIDS will bounce back among adolescents
– The risk that growing infection rates in Eastern Europe and Central Asia will continue unchecked.

Ethical, Social, and Political Challenges of Artificial Intelligence in Health

Future Advocacy was commissioned by the Wellcome Trust to look at the ethical, social, and political implications of the use of AI in health and medical research. We wanted to go beyond issues that have already been identified, such as those around the use of patient data and algorithmic transparency, to explore whether these new technologies throw up new ethical issues, or challenge existing ethical principles in new ways. The Wellcome Trust is using the findings to inform future funding programmes.

The report is a really fantastic piece of work. Absolutely just the thing we were looking for. It's so clearly written and well researched. I can see it being foundational in some ways, and having influence for years to come.

– Daniel O’Connor, Wellcome Trust
