Developing moral AI to support decision-making about antimicrobial use

  16 November 2022

The use of decision-support systems based on artificial intelligence approaches in antimicrobial prescribing raises important moral questions. Adopting ethical frameworks alongside such systems can aid the consideration of infection-specific complexities and support moral decision-making to tackle antimicrobial resistance.

The development and adoption of AI-based decision-support tools to support improved antimicrobial use raises significant moral questions. Most notably, antimicrobial prescribing decision-support systems must, we argue, achieve a moral balance between the needs of an individual patient and those of the wider and future society.
