Your Robot Doctor Will See You Now

November 14, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Artificial Intelligence can be applied to almost any field in medicine, and its potential contributions to biomedical research and delivery of healthcare seem limitless. AI has the capacity to make healthcare more efficient and patient-friendly; speed up and reduce errors in diagnosis; help patients manage symptoms or cope with chronic illness; and help avoid human bias and error. The use of AI in healthcare will require the development of new technologies to support human-AI interaction. Understanding human-AI relationships and the social, moral and ethical issues around the use of these technologies is critical. Join a discussion on how artificial intelligence is already shaping the future of healthcare and bring along your phone to have your say about the issues raised.

This event is part of the ‘Beyond Bodies’ series organised by the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society at University of Edinburgh.
