Deep learning, a subtype of artificial intelligence (AI), has considerable transformative potential to promote accuracy, streamline workflow, synthesize data for both clinicians and patients, promote patient autonomy, and greatly enhance the patient-clinician relationship. To date, however, prospective validation studies are quite limited.

Dr. Eric Topol, M.D., will discuss how we need to confront such vital issues of how AI can unintentionally worsen inequities and discrimination. The goal, which may be considered counter-intuitive, is to use this technology to make medicine more human.
