A new report from the World Health Organization (WHO) offers guidance for the ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the health sector.

The six primary principles for the use of AI as set forth in the report are to protect autonomy; promote human well-being, safety, and the public interest; ensure transparency, explainability, and intelligibility; foster responsibility and accountability; ensure inclusiveness and equity; and promote responsive and sustainable AI.

These principles are intended as a foundation for AI stakeholders, including governments, developers, and society.

The report, Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence for Health, finds public- and private-sector collaboration necessary to ensure AI’s accountability.
