As the application of advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence (‘A.I.’) and machine learning (‘ML’), has become a reality of human life, the legal and ethical issues surrounding the use of such advanced technologies are the subject of much debate and legal scrutiny. Any potential error in digitalised medical protocols vis-à-vis specific medical procedures can have irreparable consequences for the involved patient. Despite this risk, there still are no clearly defined regional or global regulations, that seek to address these legal and ethical issues, including associated liability of those involved in the programming, operation, and application of A.I. in healthcare.
The HCLA team, alongside associated partners, are working on a legal report and practical research that will serve as a guide for attorneys and health activists. The report will highlight regulatory needs as well as highlight the critical nature of transparency in the areas of analytics, civil liability, privacy, and data protection.
