Abstract

This project examines the possible ethical implications of emerging machine learning technologies in medicine, as technological complexities underlying such ethical implications need to be translated into a language accessible to the broader public. The project also provides a description of machine learning that is intended to inform those who are not familiar with the technology. After analyzing some of the benefits of present and potential applications of machine learning in medicine, we call attention to issues such as explainability and interpretability.
