A new book in the Cambridge Bioethics and Law series, called AI in eHealth: Human Autonomy, Data Governance and Privacy in Healthcare is just out. It is edited by Marcelo Corrales Compagnucci, Michael Lowery Wilson, Mark Fenwick, Nikolaus Fort and Till Brnighausen.

The description of the book says: “The emergence of digital platforms and the new application economy are transforming healthcare and creating new opportunities and risks for all stakeholders in the medical ecosystem. Many of these developments rely heavily on data and AI algorithms to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor diseases and other health conditions. A broad range of medical, ethical and legal knowledge is now required to navigate this highly complex and fast-changing space. This collection brings together scholars from medicine and law, but also ethics, management, philosophy, and computer science, to examine current and future technological, policy and regulatory issues. In particular, the book addresses the challenge of integrating data protection and privacy concerns into the design of emerging healthcare products and services. With a number of comparative case studies, the book offers a high-level, global, and interdisciplinary perspective on the normative and policy dilemmas raised by the proliferation of information technologies in a healthcare context.”

AI Transparency Institute has also contributed a chapter in this book.
