Dr. Powles publishes ‘Google DeepMind and Healthcare in an Age of Algorithms’.

 A new study co-authored by LML member Dr. Julia Powles and The Economist’s Hal Hodson examines in detail Google DeepMind’s entry into the healthcare space. The paper, published in the journal Health and Technology, critically analyses the architecture, communication, and oversight of a foundational deal with the Royal Free London NHS Hospital Trust. It also spans broader, future-oriented questions of transparency, data value, and market power in data-driven healthcare. 

More information about the paper is available here. It has received wide press coverage, including in the BBC, Quartz, The Verge, Business Insider, Wired and numerous other outlets.
