The Swedish National Council on Medical Ethics arranges the conference “Artificial intelligence in health care. What are the opportunities? ethical challenges?” on the 6th of December. The event is free of charge, but tickets are limited. Welcome!
Artificial intelligence and machine learning is often described as having the possibility to transform healthcare. The technology has the potential to become a powerful instrument in various areas such as diagnostics, screening and treatment.
The aim of the conference is to illuminate how artificial intelligence might change healthcare and what ethical challenges the development brings with it. Another important question is in what way existing legal framework needs to be adjusted to the new technology.
The conference will take place 6 December at 9.00 a.m. to 15.30 p.m. at Malmtorgsgatan 3 in Stockholm.
Smer has invited distinguished speakers, both national and international to talk about the subject of AI in heathcare and what the ethical implications are. Before lunch all presentations will be in Swedish, and after lunch in English.
Among the participants are Jeroen van den Hoven, professor in Ethics and Technology at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, Peter Dabrock, professor of Systematic Theology/Ethics at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and Chair of the German Ethics Council and Timo Minssen, professor at Law at the University of Copenhagen and the Founding Director of UCPH’s Center for Advanced Studies in Biomedical Innovation Law (CeBIL).
