AI technology has the potential to bring significant benefits in many areas, but can also pose risks if no ethical guardrails are put in place. In 2019, the European Commission therefore released guidelines stating that trustworthy AI should be lawful, ethical, and robust.
COMFORT strives to comply with these guidelines by developing a multimodal AI for kidney cancer and prostate cancer patients that is accountable, responsible, and transparent.
As a crucial part of COMFORT’s vision, we will investigate how trust in the developed multimodal computational models can be established from ethical, societal, and psychological perspectives. Additionally, we will explore how AI-based knowledge gain can be presented transparently to patients and medical professionals. By doing so, we aim to ensure that our AI technology is used in a responsible and trustworthy manner.
To ensure a positive impact on society, COMFORT’s AI will adhere to the following principles:
- respect for human autonomy
- prevention of harm
