Artificial intelligence (AI) holds great promise for improved health-care outcomes. It has been used to analyze tumor images, to help doctors choose among different treatment options, and to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. But AI also poses new hazards, including discrimination.

This talk will focus on several forms of AI bias and analyze their implications. It will argue that algorithmic discrimination in medicine can violate civil rights laws when it exacerbates health disparities or perpetuates inequities. It will also offer several legal and technical interventions that can be implemented to promote algorithmic fairness.
