The challenges of automated decision-making in healthcare
As technologies in the healthcare sector become more advanced, new questions have emerged around their development, deployment and use. These technologies have the potential to aid incredible leaps and bounds in healthcare, but who is making the decisions about treatment and medicine? And who is responsible for the decisions made by automated systems?
We must first understand how these technologies work before turning to challenges and questions of accountability. This expert panel comprising Professor Uwe Aickelin (Head of the School of Computing and Information Systems) and Professor Wendy Chapman and Dr Daniel Capurro (Centre for Digital Transformation of Health) will discuss new and emerging technology being deployed in healthcare and the challenges medical practitioners face in using them.
The panel will also consider questions such as: What are the benefits? What are the risks? And are these technologies mature enough to be used, and if not, when will they be?
This panel is part of the Centre for AI and Digital Ethics’ seminar series ‘Technology and the World Around Us.’ We are proud to deliver it in collaboration with The Centre for Digital Transformation of Health.
