【Seminar】Derrick Au_On the Doctor-AI-Patient Relationship


Topic:On the Doctor-AI-Patient Relationship
Speaker:Derrick Au

Contrary to earlier hypes, artificial intelligence (AI) does not seem likely to displace or replace doctors in the foreseeable future, but it will impact how work is conducted and how decisions are made. AI will be more than a technical assistant to doctors, and will substantially impact professional relationships, patient engagement, knowledge hierarchy, and possibly the fundamental role of doctors in healthcare. This presentation reviews current developments of AI in medicine, including radiology and mental health, and considers ethical issues and challenges of AI applications in clinical medicine, with a focus on medical decision making and accountability.
