Is the AI-patient interaction ethical?

Ethics experts about the use of artificial intelligence by patients.

We also asked ethics experts to comment on the use of AI by patients directly. Do they think this interaction can be considered ethical?

Both ethics experts seem to be concerned with the data privacy aspect and the fact that patients might need healthcare professions to help them with the interpretation of the data.

Do you think we can take sufficient measures to deal with these concerns? Would the interaction then be considered ethical, or are there other aspects that they have not taken into account yet? Discuss with your fellow learners.
