Liability issues for the use of artificial intelligence in health care in Canada: AI and medical decision-making
AbstractThis paper explores Canadian liability concerns flowing from the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) as a tool assisting physicians in their medical decision-making. It argues that the current Canadian legal framework is sufficient, in most cases, to allow developers and users of AI technology to assess each stakeholder's responsibility should the technology cause harm.
