The Dataethics program of the Eurolife network is announcing an online summer school for undergraduate or PhD students from 12 to 16 July 2021 entitled Big Data, Big Implications: The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in Biomedicine.
“With the development of health technology, a wealth of biomedical data, so-called big data, is being created including various genomic and genetic information, but also data from imaging procedures. Creating them is no longer a challenge today, but their safe storage, ethical handling, interpretation and the proper application of artificial intelligence are so”, explained Dr. Csaba Bödör, senior research fellow at the 1st Department of Pathology and Experimental Cancer Research, member of Eurolife university alliances.
Semmelweis University has been the member of Eurolife since 2017, which recently formed a new consortium to develop ethical and conceptual aspects of the handling and use of big data, and to update and develop related policies.
Dataethics has set four basic goals for the ethical use of big data: sharing best practices; the development of widely available online materials; creating storage space for the continuous collection of materials; and the development of ethical models for biomedical, healthcare institutions and industry actors dealing with big data. The cooperation will be held in the form of summer and winter schools over a four-semester period.
