Remaining true to our mission we joined the Economist revolutionary World Series and the discussion on the challenges and opportunities AI creates for the healthcare sector. The Conference entitled “The Artificially Intelligent Healthcare Sector| Delving into deep water” took place on September 24th 2018at Grand Hyatt Athens.
Dean Kostas Axarloglou participated in the panel “Challenges and Opportunities for the Healthcare Professionals” and commented on the topic. More specifically he underlined the fact that AI created a whole new, and different relation between human kind and machines.
He also commented that AI defies location since through technology people can work remotely in collaboration with the machine. New working relations are developing. People work virtually and in virtual teams. “These are exciting times for business schools” he pointed out, since professors need to research and develop new management theories to cover the needs of the managing/leading and evaluating teams working virtually- freed from the location factor.
Dean Axarloglou concluded that AI should be developed through a set of ethical principles: fair, reliable/safe, private/secure, Inclusive transparent and accountable.
