Philips to aid UK government in developing AI and digital health solutions

11th December 2017

Philips has agreed to support a UK government project that aims to drive innovation in the development of new digital health technologies.

As part of the 4.7 billion pound Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, Philips will work with public bodies, industry colleagues, the Office of Life Sciences and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to develop new of AI-based and digital diagnostic solutions at scale.

The aim will be to create a new digital pathology programme using AI and explore a similar programme within radiology, with Philips taking part in a pilot exploring the use of networked digital pathology laboratories in Scotland.

This work comes in addition to the positive contribution made by Philips' recent acquisition of the digital pathology software company PathXL, which has seen its workforce double within 12 months, thus contributing positively to the local economy and creating a globally-recognised digital pathology research hub in Belfast.

Neil Mesher, chief executive officer of Philips Electronics in the UK and Ireland, said: "A campaign like this, which explores possibilities of accelerating diagnosis and improving  accuracy, could have profound implications in disease areas such as cancer where precision diagnosis can be critical to patient survival."
