Researchers say use of artificial intelligence in medicine raises ethical questions

David Magnus, PhD, senior author of the piece and director of the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics, said bias can play into health data in three ways: human bias;

What if different treatment decisions about patients are made depending on insurance status or their ability to pay?” The authors called for a national conversation about the “perpetual tension between the goals of improving health and generating profit … since the builders and purchasers of machine-learning systems are unlikely to be the same people delivering bedside care.” They also put the responsibility for finding solutions and setting the agenda on health care professionals.

Remaining ignorant about the construction of machine-learning systems or allowing them to be constructed as black boxes could lead to ethically problematic outcomes.” The authors acknowledge the social pressure to incorporate the latest tools in order to provide better health outcomes for patients.
