Ethical and legal issues in artificial intelligence-based cardiology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Artificial intelligence (AI), notably machine learning (ML), has enormous potential to revolutionize cardiovascular medicine, ranging from research & development to clinical applications to continuous remote monitoring. However, these innovations bring with them several ethical and legal issues. This chapter discusses some issues that stakeholders, especially AI developers, cardiologists, and regulators, should know about and address together—safety risks, AI/ML black boxes, and bias—as well as data access, privacy, and security.
