View full programme

Benjamin Docquir, Partner, IT&IP Practice & Ann-Sophie De Graeve, Counsel, IT&IP Practice - Osborne Clarke

Short description of the workshop:

With big data and artificial intelligence, we envision a data revolution in the health care area. Computers and mobile apps promise to become an integral part of the "supply chain", but raise many legal and ethical questions: who owns the data and the prescriptive outputs produced by those AI tools? Are patients still in control of their privacy and personal data? Who is accountable for the use of such techniques ? What are the legal requirements to be complied with by service providers and healthcare professionals?
