To achieve the promoted benefits of an AI symptom checker, laypeople must trust and subsequently follow its instructions. In AI, explanations are seen as a tool to communicate the rationale behind black-box decisions to encourage trust and adoption. However, the effectiveness of the types of explanations used in AI-driven symptom checkers has not y...

The modelling of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) has the potential to drive more efficient allocation of healthcare resources, enabling early intervention strategies and advancing personalised healthcare. However, EHRs are challenging to model due to their realisation as noisy, multi-modal data occurring at irregular time intervals. To address the...

The choice of sentence encoder architecture reflects assumptions about how a sentence's meaning is composed from its constituent words. We examine the contribution of these architectures by holding them randomly initialised and fixed, effectively treating them as as hand-crafted language priors, and evaluating the resulting sentence encoders on dow...

We investigate Relational Graph Attention Networks, a class of models that extends non-relational graph attention mechanisms to incorporate relational information, opening up these methods to a wider variety of problems. A thorough evaluation of these models is performed, and comparisons are made against established benchmarks. To provide a meaning...

Experimental evidence indicates that simple models outperform complex deep networks on many unsupervised similarity tasks. We provide a simple yet rigorous explanation for this behaviour by introducing the concept of an optimal representation space, in which semantically close symbols are mapped to representations that are close under a similarity...

... This has also been identified in previous reports in relation to Artificial Intelligence (AI), which highlighted that users of online symptom checkers wish to be provided an explanation for the results reached based upon their personal data (103). Ensuring that users are aware of how results of digital assessments were reached may potentially increase trust, and encourage users to follow personalized triage recommendations (104). This was also reflected in the findings of the current study, which showed that some users reported that the lack of explanation of diagnostic decision making precluded them from or caused hesitation in showing their results report to a clinician. ...
