Implementation of the AI technology comes with many challenges, and it is necessary that implementation of it in healthcare is done with great ethical and legal care.
In the NCBio conference we discuss these challenges with input not only from ethical experts, but also from healthcare researchers and patients.
The conference is organised by the Nordic Committee on Bioethics (NCBio) in collaboration with the Department of Clinical Research at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and Odense University Hospital.
The event is free of charge and open to the public. It is taking place at Syddansk Universitet in Odense. You can also join the event online.
