The GERMAN ISRAELI HEALTH FORUM FOR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (GIHF-AI) connects experts from Germany and Israel in the field of Digital Health with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). GIHF-AI is an initiative by ELNET-Germany.
The digitalization of the healthcare system is one of the central challenges of our time. The use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, among other things, offers enormous opportunities for improving general health. Germany and Israel can learn a lot from each other and shape the future together. For tomorrow’s healthcare system.
The German Israeli Health Forum for Artificial Intelligence (GIHF-AI) was founded by ELNET Germany in 2021. At the center of the forum lies the digitalization of the healthcare system with a focus on the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning. The aim is to develop recommendations for action for German politics through dialogue formats and annual conferences as well as regular publications. These deal with three core areas: technology and security, regulation, and communication and trust.
Israel’s health system has been successively digitalized for over 25 years. Over 700 startups were created. GIHF-AI should transfer knowledge accordingly and identify synergies with Germany. The program is funded by the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG) and also serves the purpose of building new bridges between the two countries. In the future, GIHF-AI should also include other European nations.
