A New Way to Predict Epidemics: the EPI-BRAIN Initiative
Day 1: 16.35 – 18.00 MCH Room
The EPI-BRAIN Initiative is a global data ecosystem that supports data science innovation for outbreak preparedness and response. EPI-BRAIN will enable greater exchange of data, analytics, and methodologies between countries, researchers, non-governmental, and private sector entities. EPI-BRAIN will inform strategies and decision making for outbreak preparedness and response globally.
This workshop will engage participants in discussions on some of the core features of EPI-BRAIN:
A global data eco-system – promoting greater access to data analysis and insights for outbreaks preparedness and response
A curation of practical and impactful use cases – solving problems using improved data science
Global partnerships between countries, academia, non-governmental entities, and private sectors entities
Data governance covering sharing and use of data

Data and AI commons for Health
Day 2: 11.40 – 15.20 Delhi Room
As we progress towards understanding how AI can be used to accelerate understanding and solving some of the world’s greatest healthcare problems, various efforts are ongoing globally to disseminate and scale our common knowledge in this space. The need for shared data and collective effort to build replicable AI models is growing.
There are now opportunities to evaluate how data trusts and AI models can be made available to benefit collaborative approaches that will benefit everyone.
The workshop will provide an opportunity to participate in the proposal of a framework for AI and Data stewardship in healthcare and help consolidate efforts towards reaching global goals in the healthcare agenda.

Artificial intelligence and digital health – an international platform to enable action
Day 2: 14.00 – 16.30 Kairo Room
During this 2 ½ hour consultation, convened by Ambassador Amandeep Singh Gill, Former Executive Director, UNSG High Level Panel on Digital Corporation, Fondation Botnar and the Novartis Foundation, we will come together to “ideate” on a number of key issues – defining key terms and goals for digital health; outlining the critical financial, human resource and technical challenges to the global spread of digital and AI enablers for health; distilling priorities for research and evaluation; and listing cross- border gaps in governance, benchmarks and standards which would need to be addressed urgently so that AI and data can be deployed safely and securely for health. The results of this consultation will feed into the development of a new international collaboration on AI and health.
