Just this week, new guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) found that AI has great potential for improving international healthcare, but ethics and human rights must also be taken into consideration.
In its latest report, Ethics and governance of artificial intelligence for health, experts look at how AI can improve diagnosis and screening for diseases and how it can be best used to minimise risk. WHO says governments, providers and designers must work together to address ethics and human rights concerns at every stage of AI technology’s design.
