Expert talk about Artificial Intelligence in healthcare at German Medical Association

Artificial Intelligence will increasingly change our healthcare system. To prepare doctors for this change and involve them in the process, the German Medical Association (Bundesärztekammer) will develop a positioning on the Development of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare (“Entwicklung der Künstlichen Intelligenz in der Gesundheitsversorgung”). The expert talks serve to accumulate and incorporate the perspectives of primarily non-medical stakeholders in the development of AI.

On 25 June 2024, Professor Sonntag gave a talk on AI in Patient Care and Medical Diagnostics (“KI in der Patientenversorgung und medizinischen Diagnostik”) as an invited expert. The positioning of the German Medical Association that needs to be developed includes the following questions in particular: What has been the focus of the use of AI in the last 5 years and which developments and fields of application of AI can be expected in your area of responsibility in the next three to five years? Which opportunities and risks/challenges do you see for the current and future use of AI in your area? Where do you see a need for regulation concerning the use of AI?
