Thursday, March 23, 2023: “Supporting Clinical and Translational Researchers with Electronic Patient Data"

Keynote Speaker:  

Thomas Campion, Jr., PhD, FACMI, FAMIA

Clinical and translational investigators need patient data, especially from electronic health record (EHR) systems, to conduct research, but optimal approaches are unknown.  This talk explores an approach for supporting different types of investigators and study designs by matching investigators with informatics tools and services.

Thursday, December 1, 2022: "Double-Edged Sword”: Genetic Data Sharing and Implications for the Learning Health System"

Kayte Spector-Bagdady, JD, Bioethics, Interim Co-Director, Center for Bioethics & Social Sciences in Medicine Assistant Professor, Obstetrics & Gynecology
University of Michigan Medical School

In contrast to the laborious and expensive process of generating genetic datasets de novo, academic genetic researchers are increasingly using large and inexpensive “secondary” research datasets held by government, consortia, and industry for their work. Choosing between different kinds of data providers is about more than just convenience, however, it can also have important implications for the kind of science advanced and to which communities it will generalize. This talk will explore the factors driving researchers to select certain datasets for their work as well as their experiences sharing to, as well as using, shared data resources. As researchers wait for the new National Institutes of Health’s “Policy for Data Management and Sharing” to go into effect in January 2023, this talk will explore who ultimately carries the burden of increasing data sharing requirements

Tuesday, November 8, 2022: Health Equity Reviews for AI in Health and Medicine

Kadija Ferryman, PhD, Assistant Professor, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

In this talk, Professor Ferryman will discuss the merits and challenges of conducting health equity reviews of artificial intelligence (AI) tools used in health and medicine. The talk will examine how interdisciplinary approaches from the social sciences, bioethics and humanities, and computational fields can be involved in the development of concepts, methods, frameworks, and guidelines for understanding and governing digital health tools.

Thursday, October 20, 2022: Explainability - AI and Ethics

Alex John London, PhD, Clara L. West Professor of Ethics and Philosophy, Director of the Center for Ethics and Policy at Carnegie Mellon University

Explainability Is Not the Solution to Structural Challenges to AI in Medicine

Explainability is often treated as a necessary condition for ethical applications of artificial intelligence (AI) in Medicine. In this brief talk I survey some of the structural challenges facing the development and deployment of effective AI systems in health care to illustrate some of the limitations to explainability in addressing these challenges. This talk builds on prior work (London 2019, 2022) to illustrate how ambitions for AI in health care likely require significant changes to key aspects of health systems.

Melissa McCradden, PhD, MHSc

John and Melinda Thompson Director of AI in Medicine (Integration lead), Bioethicist, The Hospital for Sick Children

On the Inextricability of Explainability from Ethics: Explainable AI does not Ethical AI Make

Explainability is embedded into a plethora of legal, professional, and regulatory guidelines as it is often presumed that an ethical use of AI will require explainable algorithms. There is considerable controversy, however, as to whether post hoc explanations are computationally reliable, their value for decision-making, and the relational implications of their use in shared decision-making. This talk will explore the literature across these domains and argue that while post hoc explainability may be a reasonable technical goal, it should not be offered status as a moral standard by which AI use is judged to be ‘ethical.’

The session is moderated by Karandeep Singh, MD, MMSc, Assistant Professor of Learning Health Sciences, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, University of Michigan.
