This event is hosted by the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Ethics (CAIDE).
Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) hold out the potential for revolutionary improvements in health care, but also present risks and raise questions as to whether existing laws are sufficient to meet the challenges raised by different forms of health-related AI.
In this presentation Professor Flood will discuss insights from six multi-disciplinary case-study workshops, which interrogated the sufficiency of existing Canadian laws to meet the challenges posed by various health-AI. The innovations workshopped included a suicide-prediction application, a surgical decision-support tool, a self-driving wheelchair, a triaging tool for a paediatric emergency room, “digital twin” technology, and a tool for assessing the risk of cardiac arrest in a paediatric ICU, She will explore whether existing privacy, liability, anti-discrimination and informed consent laws are sufficiently to meet the challenges of various health-related AI and what these case-studies suggest are gaps and solutions for the legal governance of health-AI.
A light lunch will be served at 12:45pm, before the event commences at 1pm.
