For the first time ever AI systems can directly harm patients. Are we doing enough to prevent a medical AI tragedy, the equivalent of a thalidomide event?
Humans explain their decisions with words. In our latest work, we suggest AI systems should do the same.

It has since struck me that we don't have a simple, clear way to discuss the idea that some studies are still a still a long way off use in the clinics, and others … Continue reading The three phases of medical AI trials
