Jewish Healthcare Foundation President and CEO Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD moderated the panel "AI and Societal Impact: Health Equity" at the two-day CMU-K&L Gates Conference in Ethics and AI held at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) June 21-22. 

Panelists included: Yoel Sadovsky, MD, Executive Director of Magee-Womens Research Institute and Associate Dean of Women's Health Research and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh; Ahmad Pahlavan Tafti, PhD, FAMIA, Director of the Pitt HexAI Lab and Assistant Professor of Health Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh; and Yanshan Wang, PhD, FAMIA, Vice Chair of Research and Assistant Professor in Health Information Management at the University of Pittsburgh.

Dr. Feinstein led the discussion which covered topics such as the application of digital twin technology in health care, how computational innovations can help bridge the inequitable application of health care, ways in which data-informed decision making can augment health policy to increase the reach and efficacy of health care and health policy nationally, and how Pittsburgh institutions like CMU and the University of Pittsburgh can more closely collaborate on research and solutions within technology and health care.

The CMU-K&L Gates Conference in Ethics and AI brings together thought leaders from academia, industry, government and the media to go beyond the slogans and soundbites to debate the effects of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics on our society. The interdisciplinary talks aim to engage all affected communities and identify ways in which new technologies support and advance humanity.
