on
Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Global Health; a southern perspective

The development and application of A.I to low and middle income countries presents unprecedented opportunities and challenges for global health. A.I practitioners need to be cognisant of the ethical, social, and cultural factors applicable to target markets before and during A.I algorithm coding. Practical and systemic challenges associated with A.I application in low and middle income countries also need to be given careful consideration. A.I development and implementation will have to comply with human rights norms, and not undermine human self-determinism.
