Ethical and Legal Considerations for Precision Health Research Incorporating Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence To Improve Care


Join us for a frank discussion about the law and ethics of health research that relies on artificial intelligence and machine learning, and the impact it can have on treatment and perpetuation of health disparities. We’ll discuss legal and ethical issues related to biased algorithms, liability, regulation, data ownership and responsible use of health data. Incorporating perspectives from a computational social scientist (Abigail Jacobs, Assistant Professor, Complex Systems and Information, LSA) and a legal scholar with expertise in the responsible use of big data (Nicholson Price, Professor, Law), this webinar will provoke thought and provide important information to help clinicians and data scientists continue their research while also working to improve care and reduce health disparities.

The event will be moderated by Vicki Ellingrod, Pharm.D., Associate Research Dean and Professor, Pharmacy.
