Inteligencia Artificial en Salud Digital: Cuestiones y dimensiones de los aspectos éticas

  • Fredrick R. Ishengoma The University of Dodoma
Palabras clave: Inteligencia artificial, Sanidad digital, Ética, Machine Learning


La inteligencia artificial (IA) está transformando el sistema de atención médica a un ritmo vertiginoso al mejorar los servicios, la investigación y el rendimiento de la atención médica digital, impulsados por la combinación de grandes datos y sólidos algoritmos de aprendizaje automático. Como resultado, las aplicaciones de IA se están empleando en dominios de atención médica digital, algunos de los cuales antes se consideraban realizados solo por experiencia humana. Sin embargo, a pesar de los beneficios de la IA en los servicios de atención médica digital, es necesario abordar los problemas y las preocupaciones éticas. Utilizando la metodología de revisión de mapeo, se presenta y discute una taxonomía de problemas y preocupaciones éticas que rodean el empleo de la IA en el cuidado de la salud. Además, se presentan recomendaciones de política y direcciones de investigación futuras.
