This webinar was initially presented in March 2023 at CSMD2023.
Artificial intelligence (AI)- and machine learning (ML)-based medical devices, once a dream of science fiction writers, have firmly established their place in the market and will continue to gain in popularity in the coming months and years. With uses ranging from virtual assistance to image analytics to robotic-assisted surgeries, manufacturers have only begun to explore the utility and value of these devices.
Such rapid innovation, however, can cause severe regulatory headaches. The relatively controlled and documented methods applied to R&D of conventional medical devices are not traditionally practiced in the highly agile environment of AI/ML algorithm development. This presentation will highlight standards that can be followed to bring an added layer of rigor to the development and documentation of AI/ML-based medical devices. In addition, it will cover Good Machine Learning Practices that will aid manufacturers in designing proper validation and clinical testing procedures to enable a smoother regulatory submission process.
