Can You Sue an Algorithm?
In this installment of the NCI Imaging and Informatics Community Webinar, Dr. Saurabh Jha will share hypothetical case studies and the legal scholarship surrounding the question: "Who gets sued when the algorithm makes a diagnostic error?" With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled technologies that could diagnose and predict treatment outcomes, so comes the questions of ethical, social, and legal implications of AI. Law has shaped American healthcare in the past, and lawsuits could influence the adoption of AI for medicine.
This event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Saurabh Jha is a British-trained doctor, U.S.-trained radiologist, and associate professor of radiology at the University of Pennsylvania.
