Mayo Clinic's Contemporary Challenges in Bioethics and Clinical Research 2022: AI, Big Data, and Privacy is an interactive course that seeks to provide a cutting-edge update on the impacts of artificial intelligence, big data, and evolving healthcare technologies on patient care, healthcare systems, research, and bioethical paradigms. Questions and conundrums raised are examined through the lens of clinical faculty, government regulators, industry leaders, and bioethicists. This course is born from a collaboration between Mayo Clinic's IRB, Center for Bioethics, and the Mayo Clinic Platform. The combined expertise and perspectives from these groups allow for dissemination of and discussion of challenges and progress and issues faced as healthcare adapts to the changing environment fostered by artificial intelligence and big data and the ever increasing use of technology.
