Role within COMFORT

Within the COMFORT project, BHT is one of the leading institutes in the fields of medical data processing and AI models development. BHT is actively involved in two work packages: WP3 "Development of multimodal AI models" and WP5 "Trustworthiness of AI models", where it leads several tasks with the objectives of developing a natural language model that assists clinical sites in extracting relevant information from the electronic health records (EHRs), integrating the models into a clinical application, and creating advanced trustworthiness models to ensure explainability, address ethical concerns regarding biases, and protect patient privacy.
