What do we, as designers, strategists, thinkers, think of putting vulnerable moments of human experience—going to the hospital, getting an X-Ray—in the hands of a computer? In a world of increasingly more powerful technology, designers need to think of not just how technology can help, but how it might harm, and how to prevent that. With great cognitive computing, comes great responsibility.
In this roundtable experience, we (and that means you, too) will discuss: Opening a dialogue of how bioethical principles might be applied to everyday design practice within healthcare.
We’ll review examples of:
- Psychotherapy & AI
- The complications of using common interaction patterns in healthcare
- Clinical decision making & AI
- Adapting existing design tools to hopefully, prevent long term unintended ethical consequences
