AI and Clinical Data – Why Sharing is Caring
The evolving landscape of AI health information technologies can transform medicine by improving diagnosis, treatment, and the delivery of patient care. However, this transformation can only happen if healthcare data are shared in a defined ethical framework. To achieve this, Arianna Ferrino believes there needs to be continuous dialog, from the fields of medicine and computer science, and policymakers, to navigate ethical questions surrounding AI and medical data-sharing and translate ethical consideration into regulatory and legal requirements.
