Ethical Principles for Artificial Intelligence for Medicine Version 2

The College has recently revised the Ethical Principles for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Medicine, originally published in 2019. The nine ethical principles inform the deployment and adoption of AI tools in medicine.

AI should at all times be safe for patients and society, respect human dignity and reflect the human centric values underpinning good medical care.

We received a great response to this consultation and would like to thank everyone who responded.

The varied perspectives received during the consultation process have enabled us to produce a more considered and robust paper.
