Innovation in healthcare is to a large extent dependent and driven by data. Developing and using news tools, including AI and automated systems requires large amounts of health and health related personal data. A number of important ethical, legal and social issues have to be considered.
Who, if anyone, owns the data? What is data protection? What is personal data? What are the major legal obligations regarding data? Do patients have rights regarding their data? Is it enough to follow the law? What type of ethical and social aspects should be taken into consideration?
This seminar will provide a basic introduction to legal issues and broader ethical and social discussions regarding AI and data.
