Medical AI could be ‘dangerous’ for poorer nations, WHO warns

January 19, 2024
Summary
WHO warns that AI-based health care technologies could be hazardous for lower-income nations. Contemporary models that lack data from these underprivileged regions might not serve them properly. WHO's digital health director stresses the importance of avoiding inequality amplification through these technologies. The WHO updated its AI health care guidelines due to quick generative AI development, requiring governments, civil societies, and recipients to participate in its all-round regulation and development. The report later expressed concern about potential industrial capture, as larger firms may monopolize AI research, causing potential loss of academia involvement.
