Trusting AI in Health Care

Can We Trust Artificial Intelligence?

A good first step to trusting AI is to acknowledge that this technology is not inherently good or bad. It is a tool, and its application can lead to positive or negative results depending on the model. Learn whether to trust an AI system by asking questions about the data, understanding how humans are kept in the loop, and finding out whether AI is being used to improve the AI system.

Artificial Intelligence and Clinician Trust in Health Care

AI is capable of transforming health care practices, but Clinicians need to be the first to accept this technology before patients will accept it as well. This peer-reviewed article examines a number of personal and systematic factors that influence trust in AI. Read on to learn how clinicians can build trust in AI systems and why it matters.

Health and Trust in Adaptive Algorithms

We already trust and use machines in medical settings, but AI tools differ because they introduce adaptive algorithms that are constantly improving. These improved systems don’t mean an emotionless machine is providing the care though. Healthcare providers remain essential to making a treatment plan, providing empathy, and overseeing the algorithm.
