Ethical, social, and political challenges of artificial intelligence in Health

Future Advocacy was commissioned by the Wellcome Trust to look at the ethical, social, and political implications of the use of AI in health and medical research. We wanted to go beyond issues that have already been identified, such as those around the use of patient data and algorithmic transparency, to explore whether these new technologies throw up new ethical issues, or challenge existing ethical principles in new ways. The Wellcome Trust is using the findings to inform future funding programmes.
