Andrew Trister, Deputy Director for Digital Health Innovation at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation discusses some of the AI use cases at the foundation with the goal of bringing “community-based” healthcare to underserved populations in the global south.

He also discusses the COVID-19 response and improving the accuracy of malaria testing with a bayesian framework amongst others, and the challenges like scaling these systems and building out infrastructure so that communities can begin to support themselves.

Andrew also touches on his previous work at Apple, where he helped develop what is now known as Research Kit, their ML for health tools that are now seen in apple devices like phones and watches.
