Digital Frukost

Digital frukost: AI and responsible research and innovation in health decision-making

Artificial intelligence (AI) has a tremendous potential in healthcare and there are many potential ways AI can be used to treat patients more efficiently and accurately. Nevertheless, there are potential ethical issues and pitfalls that must be considered.

The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report last that proposed six principles for the ethical use of AI in health. The principles are:

  • Protect autonomy
  • Promote human safety
  • Ensure transparency
  • Foster accountability
  • Ensure equity
  • Promote AI that is sustainable

In this Digital frukost event we will have a special focus on AI and responsible research and innovation in health with these principles in mind. We will start the event by giving you an introduction to the potential of AI in healthcare as well as some ethical dilemmas, before leading researchers will share how their own work that touch on these issues. At the end of the event there will be an open discussion moderated by Klas Pettersen, CEO of  NORA.AI.
