It is becoming increasingly common to find situations that can be solved thanks to new technologies used in the field of health. Science is advancing, hand in hand with technology, by leaps and bounds. Today, Mónica will explain Artificial Intelligence application in medicine and the importance of ethical and social implications of it. Mathias will give us an example of  the newest advance in medicine: Solar powered- implants.

Photovoltaic Implants

Mathias Polz (PhD Student at the TU Graz)
Solar cells as implants are no longer just a topic of theoretical research. Organic photoactive layers can be used to generate voltage for deep brain stimulators or so-called nerve conduits. Solar-powered implants eliminate the need to change batteries, reduce the risk of infection associated with surgery and are also easy to manufacture.

Ethics of AI in biomedicine: hypes, hopes and challenges

Mónica Cano Abadía (Senior Scientist at BBMRI-ERIC)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in medicine are hoped to improve healthcare and to advance health equity. While the technology carries the potential to improve health services, the ethical and societal implications need to be carefully considered to avoid harmful consequences for individuals and groups, especially for the most vulnerable. It is therefore inevitable to identify what types of ethical issues are raised by AI, and to analyse how these issues are tackled in biomedical research.
