In this frank discussion about the law and ethics of health research that relies on artificial intelligence and machine learning, and its impact on treatment and perpetuation of health disparities, the presenters discuss legal and ethical issues related to biased algorithms, liability, regulation, data ownership, and responsible use of health data. Incorporating perspectives from a computational social scientist and a legal scholar with expertise in the responsible use of big data, this webinar provides important information to help clinicians and data scientists continue their research while also working to improve care and reduce health disparities.
