The use of Artificial Intelligence systems in Health Care - promises & perils

Hi all,

The use of Artificial Intelligence in healthcare has been a reoccuring topic in conversation in the popular media and in academia. Often discussed in terms of its revolutionary potential.

This article in Nature does a great job of summing up some of the tricky nuances + showing how the use of such datacentric systems can backfire when it comes to providing suitable healthcare to marginalized populations.

Thought it might be of interest, would also love to hear what examples of AI use in health care exist in Europe and how these have been assessed given the concerns highlighted in this article.

Cheers,

CCS
