In healthcare, AI can be considered to support diagnosis, integrate patients records, identify patients at risk and vulnerable groups, provide clinical care outside the traditional health system and prioritise resource allocation.
While artificial intelligence offers many potential benefits, it also raises significant risks for the rights and freedoms of individuals whose personal data is ingested within AI systems. This can make it difficult for organisations to leverage the technology.
The potential for algorithms to result in unfair or biased decision-making is increasingly being questioned by the public. The UK and EU GDPR’s definitions and requirements for profiling and automated decision making may be applicable to AI where it finds hidden connections in data about individuals and forecast their preferences.
