Responsible AI in Health IT

10/20/23  Back

Our October Health TechNet meeting was in-person and virtual, held at Nelson Mullins’ offices in Washington, DC.

 In the last few months, we have seen many reflections on the possibilities and dangers of artificial intelligence. This is of particular interest to healthcare professionals because so much of the groundbreaking research — and so many of the potential issues with privacy and accuracy — are occurring in this space. The debate over the dilemmas of AI goes back to the films (2001, The Matrix) and television shows (Star Trek) that many of us grew up with, and it has been discussed in academic, philosophical and entrepreneurial circles for decades. Now it is here in everyday life, and we must make decisions about designing with it, using it, and remaining accountable.

We were thrilled to have Art Kleiner join Health Technet for a discussion centered around his latest book, The AI Dilemma: 7 Principles for Responsible Technology, coauthored with Juliette Powell. Art is a pioneer in organizational learning and management thinking (he was editor-in-chief of PwC’s magazine Strategy+Business), and a faculty member at NYU’s Interactive Media program. He is one of several notable authors recently writing books on the issue of responsible technology (others include MIT economist Daron Acemoglu, Deepmind confounder Mustafa Suleyman, and Algorithmic Justice League founder Joy Buolamwini).

During this exploratory discussion, Art Kleiner engaged in a conversation with Dr. Joe Bormel, MD, MPH, who kindly organized this meeting and led the dialogue, guiding us through an exploration of the relevance of responsible AI to the field of health information technology.
