Artificial Intelligence And Social Justice

Friday, March 12, 2021
11:05am – 11:50am


Dr. Kent Bottles will briefly provide an overview of how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is rapidly transforming all aspects of health care. Dr. Bottles will discuss examples of how the application of these new technologies have had unintended consequences for patients and communities. Among the examples discussed will be South American government projects to prevent teen pregnancies and American hospital efforts to use AI to decrease length of hospital stays. If AI and ML is to really help patients, social justice consequences must be identified and addressed. This effort will require communication and understanding between clinicians, IT professionals, patients, and communities.


After hearing the presentation, the participant will be able to:

  • Define how social justice concepts are relevant to AI in health care
  • Explain how specific efforts have led to unintended consequences that have harmed communities 
  • Apply ways to prevent unintended consequences in the future.
