Evaluate AI Models on diverse Real-World Medical Data

  • August 10, 2023

The advancements in AI technology for medical applications, such as Google’s Med-PaLM 2 and startups like Hippocratic and OpenEvidence, have the potential to revolutionize healthcare by providing valuable insights and actionable advice to clinicians. However, as the number of medical AI models grows, there is a growing concern about their performance and potential biases, especially when they are trained on limited and narrow clinical data, leading to unintended harmful impacts on certain patient populations, particularly minorities.To address these challenges and ensure that medical AI models are reliable and trustworthy, MLCommons, an engineering consortium focused on AI industry metrics, has developed a new testing platform called MedPerf. The primary purpose of MedPerf is to evaluate AI models on diverse real-world medical data while safeguarding patient privacy. 
The MedPerf platform serves as a crucial tool in assessing the performance of medical AI models. By using diverse real-world medical data, it aims to simulate a more comprehensive representation of patient populations and clinical settings. This approach helps identify potential biases and limitations of AI models, allowing researchers and developers to make necessary improvements and adjustments to enhance their effectiveness and fairness.Patient privacy is of utmost importance in healthcare, and MedPerf’s ability to evaluate models while protecting patient data is a significant step forward. The platform ensures that AI models can be thoroughly tested without compromising the confidentiality and security of sensitive medical information.
