Health and Artificial Intelligence: Law, Ethics and Society
The application of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine and healthcare has become increasingly commonplace and ubiquitous. This conference brings together experts from various stakeholder disciplines for an interdisciplinary discussion on the application and impact of AI in these fields from legal, ethical and societal perspectives. Using inquiries that cut across individual disciplines, we seek to explore the implications and challenges of the application of AI from a wider, holistic perspective.
