Tell us about yourself? What are you working on and why are you at Internetdagarna?
I am a law professional. I work in healthcare law, specialising in mental health law.
I was a lecturer at Internetdagarnar last year while co-authoring a book about AI and healthcare applications and their legal challenges.
For example, We have a chatbot nurse from a private company in Sweden, but the legal issue of that is: Who is accountable for the advice the chatbot nurse gives?
At the moment AI in Healthcare is in the legal framework reduced to a medical product as if it would be a scalpel or prosthetic, but we are beginning to experience problems with that because the AI s not just a tool. The technology is way ahead of the laws but also way to use to not use. Therefore we have to change and eveolve the laws.
When did something related to the internet last make you hopefull or happy?
Just a couple of minutes ago I saw a company from Peru offering mixed online-offline education to cover for not working public education in Peru. It is wonderful to see people just step in when there is a need, creating a solution partially through the internet.
When did something related to the internet last make you upset, afraid or angry?
Also this morning, the opening speaker at Internetdagarnar talked about how the Internet can be intentionally be used to distort facts. this is a problem with humans not the internet perse. Therefore the solution lies within humans as well. Projects such as this one will be options to augment the possibilities and find solutions.
This is a concern because of the rush to implement AI, particularly in the field of medicine. In medicine there is an expectation of precision, but with so many biological variables, the more precise you get the more you diverge, so large scale information potentially becomes less valuable. For example, in the 1970s, various tools were introduced to help doctors predict the likelihood of certain diseases, but attempts to refine these profiles over the years have hit a barrier. Just as you could play a lottery with 1/1000 odds every day for a thousand days and still not win, there is a crucial difference between “the destiny of the person in front of you right now, the destiny of every similar person.”
