There has been a lot of news about what AI is, with OpenAI's ChatGPT having more than 100 million users sign on within two months of launch. Simultaneously, there has been substantial news coverage about potential problems with AI, particularly with Microsoft Bing's AI chatbot's threatening and odd behavior², as well as concerns whether AI will eliminate jobs.
The concerns have even caused several well-known computer and AI experts, including Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, Tesla and Twitter, and Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, to pen a letter calling for AI developers to stop development until "we are confident that their effects will be positive, and their risks will be manageable."³
The questions arise: Is AI technology safe for use in healthcare? And in terms of how to advance health equity, can AI bridge the divide?
