Beskrivning av projektet
Our research topic is implementation of data-driven practices, learning algorithms and artificial intelligence in health care and social services. We study promises of the new technology, policy that advocates it, and actual development and adoption processes of advanced ICT in health care and social services. The cases of the study are building of Jyväskylä digital district hospital and establishment of welfare data lakes at Kuopio social services. We approach the topic from the perspective of social sciences. The research data consists of expert interviews, field observations and policy documents. The project is directed by professor of sociology Ilpo Helén (Department of Social Sciences, University of Eastern Finland).
