Ethics, Uncertainty, and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine – JCB-WIHV Lecture series co-hosted by T-CAIREM

November 15, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EST


This event is part of the Lecture Series on Ethics and Governance of AI for Health organized by the University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics in partnership with The Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care (WIHV) and AMS Healthcare.

Full Title: Ethics, Uncertainty, and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine

Abstract: Uncertainty is pervasive in medicine and how to address it in a responsible manner is a fundamental ethical concern. Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have sparked considerable interest in using new technologies to better address uncertainty and to promote safer, more effective, more efficient, and more equitable health services. This talk considers some of the unique challenges to realizing this vision that arise at key choice-points across the lifecycle of AI development and deployment.
