The European Society of Radiology (ESR) is proud to have been a part of the collaborative effort in the creation of a statement on developing codes of ethics and practice for artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology, which was recently named a EuroMinnie 2020 winner in the category of ‘Most Significant News Event in European Radiology’!
The statement was developed in coordination with six other societies across Europe and the United States; a truly international effort! As the authors of the statement explained, “We believe AI should respect human rights and freedoms, including dignity and privacy. It should be designed for maximum transparency and dependability. Ultimate responsibility and accountability for AI remains with its human designers and operators for the foreseeable future.”
