Acceptance of AI

Explainability can help healthcare professionals and patients to accept AI. Experts explain how.

Explainable AI gives access to why and how every input shapes a particular outcome provided by the AI, making it easier to understand the results. It allows healthcare professionals and patients to avoid typical pitfalls such as bias. We asked experts in the field how this explainability can affect acceptability.

In the field of healthcare, black box systems, which provide very little visibility, raise trust issues. In this video, experts explain how transparency of these systems would affect the acceptability of healthcare professionals and patients in the systems.

Do you agree with the experts? Would a “black box” be an issue for you, and would explainability help you to accept the predictions made by an AI system? How much explainability would you require from AI systems? Share your opinion with fellow learners in the discussion section.
