Artificial intelligence, or AI. It is perhaps the closest thing we have to magic in the world today, a superpower that can analyze massive amounts of data quickly and accurately. AI could be our loyal companion, helping us on our quest to answer some of our deepest and most perplexing questions. Or could it also become our master, controlling our decisions and actions and stripping us of the very thing it could never have: humanity?
Intriguing questions, don’t you think? That’s why I happily accepted the challenge from Roche, to discuss theses topics in a lively debate with the amazing Nell Watson.
The debate was held in several rounds, with Nell and myself offering our thoughts and comments on some of the most important questions around the use of AI in healthcare. Here’s a short clip from the debate, where we talk about Ethics and Design Principles.
Here’s a great write-up of the full debate.
