Abstract

The application of AI in health care will create two clinical forms: the AI-patient form and the AI-Physician-Patient form. In the former, AI systems will replace human doctors to provide diagnoses, prognoses, and therapeutic recommendations to patients. In the latter, human physicians working along with AI systems treat patients. This presentation offers a series of Confucian reasons (namely, reasons rooted in and developed from Confucian moral beliefs, but not necessarily differing from reasons based on other moral traditions) to argue why we should accept the second form rather than the first in developing the use of AI in health care.
