Announcing BRIMI: Bias Reduction In Medical Information

We are delighted to announce that our project, BRIMI: Bias Reduction In Medical Information, has been awarded NSF funding under their Fairness in AI program! This recognition highlights the lab’s pioneering work in using artificial intelligence to detect and mitigate biased health information, particularly impacting minoritized groups. BRIMI’s innovative approach will contribute to equity in health information, improving fairness in AI, medicine, and the online information ecosystem. The project’s multidisciplinary team includes Seattle Children’s Hospital and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, non-profits, and industry partners. This groundbreaking effort is, to the best of our knowledge, the first large-scale computational study of biased health information. We are looking forward to advancing our unique Fairness via AI approach to address critical challenges in health information and reduce biases!
