Debiasing artificial intelligence: Stanford researchers call for efforts to ensure that AI technologies do not exacerbate health care disparities

Medical devices utilising AI technologies stand to reduce general biases in the health care system, however, if left unchecked, the technologies could unintentionally perpetuate sex, gender, and race biases. The AI devices rely on data-driven algorithms to inform health care decisions and aid in the diagnosis of diseases. After examining the biases inherent in these systems, the paper suggests short and long term approaches to preventing AI-related bias.
