Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning can revolutionize innovation in healthcare. Public-private collaboration on a European level is vital if we want to optimize the potential of AI.
Frans van Houten, CEO Royal Philips, further expanded on this idea during a visit of Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Ingrid van Engelshoven, Dutch minister of Education, Culture and Science and Mona Keijzer, Dutch state secretary for Economic Affairs and Climate.
“I am so pleased that we have delegates from the European Commission and the Dutch Government here today,” said Frans. “It is important to have dialogues like this. When you look at the world right now, there are several challenges that we face. It is my strong conviction that we can tackle those with innovation, but only if we collaborate.
In the world, we depend on one another, something that has again been demonstrated by the COVID pandemic. If we inspire each other and raise the bar on what we expect from one another, we can do so much. At Philips we always innovate together with our customers; inviting them to the table gives innovation so much more impact.”
