Podcast Interviews With Those In-the-Know About Heath Literacy


Artificial Intelligence & Health Communication (HLOL #238)

Claire Wardle, PhD, is co-founder and co-director of the Information Futures Lab and Professor of the Practice at Brown University’s School of Public Health. Wardle is considered a leader in the field of misinformation, verification, and user generated content. Among her many accomplishments, Wardle developed an organization-wide training program about eyewitness media for the British Broadcasting Company and was a Fellow at the Shorenstein Center for Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School.

In this podcast, Claire Wardle talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI). When machines can do tasks that would previously have required human intelligence. The machines learn by scanning millions of documents and images looking for patterns. The new AI tools now accessible to the public (like ChatGPT) not only can retrieve information but also create new work based on these patterns.
  • AI as a tool of health communication. How our jobs might shift from writing the basics to focusing more on the creative side of this work.
  • AI and health content. The importance of verifying content and citations, and being transparent about the use of AI in our materials.

Health Literacy from A to Z: Practical Ways to Communicate Your Health Message, Third Edition, by Helen Osborne. Especially relevant to this podcast are the three chapters about technology.
