The Health/AI Program proposes the launch of Challenges to evaluate artificial intelligence solutions that help solve specific problems in the health field. The challenge is materialized with a public and open call for projects. Once selected, they will be subjected to an exhaustive evaluation process with the mission of choosing the best proposal to implement it in the Health System of Catalonia.
