AI Can Predict People's Race From X-Ray Images, And Scientists Are Concerned

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

Deep learning models based on artificial intelligence can identify someone's race just from their X-rays, new research has revealed – something that would be impossible for a human doctor looking at the same images.

The findings raise some troubling questions about the role of AI in medical diagnosis, assessment, and treatment: could racial bias be unintentionally applied by computer software when studying images like these?


The research has been published in The Lancet Digital Health.
