Digitaler Salon: Invisible Patient

From 7 p.m. on site and via livestream, the event series "Digitaler Salon" of the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) will discuss discrimination in medical datasets, what consequences it has and how it can be solved.

Katharina Mosene will introduce the topic.
Moderation: Katja Weber (radioeins/rbb, Deutschlandfunk Nova).

The following experts will take part: 

Dr. Ephsona Shencoru, Specialist in dermatology, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Prof. Dr. Gertraud Stadler, Director - Institute Gender in Medicine, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Isabelle Guenou, Co-Founder & CEO of the blood
About the Event
Why are AI models for breast cancer screening mainly trained on biological male bodies, although 99% of all diagnoses concern biological female bodies? And why are Black, Indigenous and/or People of Colour (BIPoC) hardly represented or sometimes not represented at all in dermatological studies despite medically relevant factors? Lack of gender-specific health research, biased training of professionals, implicit biases and generalised criteria influence medical decisions. All this affects the diagnosis and treatment of patients and promotes inequities in the health system. How big the gender data gap in medicine really is and how we can fight discrimination in medical data sets will be discussed in this edition of the Digital Salon. The event will be held in German.
Admission on site from 6:30 p.m. onwards. The programme will be broadcast live on the HIIG website from 7 p.m. Viewers can participate - via X using #DigitalerSalon.

Registration is not required for the event.

The Digital Salon takes place on the last Wednesday of every month with a different theme. You can find recordings of past Digitale Salons and more information about them here.
