In a groundbreaking move that will drive AI uptake across various sectors of the economy, Mitsumi Distribution has partnered with Dell Technologies to host innovative workshops that will focus on Artificial Intelligence and its applications particularly within the healthcare industry.

Mr Arshad Farhad, the Chief Technology Officer overseeing Dell Technologies Healthcare & Lifesciences sector in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, while addressing key stakeholders within the health sector during the inaugural workshop last week, disclosed a range of AI technologies, with a focus on Generative Artificial Intelligence.

He highlighted the essential skill sets needed, privacy concerns, and underscored the transformative impact these technologies could have on Kenya’s healthcare system and across Africa. “The purpose of AI is to enhance the capabilities of clinicians and clinical outcomes, rather than supplanting them,” he said.
