André Krom - LUMC - AI & Ethics


Unfortunately, this seminar has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.


How to navigate ethical issues in AI research

In this talk I will present an overview of common and pressing ethical issues and dilemmas faced by researchers working on potential AI applications for health care purposes. This will be the main part of my contribution to the webinar. Knowledge of such ethical issues and dilemmas, however, is one thing. Having options for action to actuallt deal with them, is another, and equally important. In the interest of providing options for action, I will therefore briefly introduce the key features of a constructive approach in applied ethics called "guidance ethics". While this approach is typically used to structure conversations about ethical questions concerning the application of AI-systems, I will argue and show that it is helpful in the context of facing ethical issues and dilemmas in AI research as well.
