On Making Medical AI a Common Good - A NEW Conversation with Bart De Witte
Play • 40 min

In this episode I will be welcoming back another previous guest of Narratives of Purpose, Bart De Witte, to hear more about his journey of making medical AI accessible.

Bart is the founder of the Hippo AI Foundation, which is designed to develop medical AI for the common good by liberating all future medical knowledge by making it open to everyone.

We spoke in November 2022, and before you tune into today’s episode, I highly encourage you to listen back to the conversation from Episode 41 to be reminded of Hippo AI’s mission and listen to today's episode to hear how Bart's work has evolved since our last conversation.

Show notes:
