From Dominic Pride
Enjoyed the event and I asked the following question:
“What happens when AI is the only option?” It was prompted by a comment made by @drjackuk about the lack of support for doctors in decision making leading to a high risk factor for patients undergoing an operation.
Along the way we uncovered the following:
-AI may well be the best option. Already planes use narrow AI to minimise pilot error and reduce cognitive load. Can this reduce risk in driving, for example?
-For AI to work, everyone must subscribe to it. A system where only part of the population cedes control to an algorithm may not work
-Personal liberty is at stake. What happens when you task an algorithm to act in your best health interests, and it mines information from different sources of your life and informs real / digital health professionals
