When algorithms make decisions with real-world consequences, they need to be fair.
A machine learning expert predicts a new balance between human and machine intelligence is on the horizon. For that to be good news, researchers need to figure out how to design algorithms that are fair.
Alongside doctors, AI could be a useful tool for providing better diagnosis.

An AI trained to look at heart scans was able to successfully predict risk of death. But one expert cautions we still need to be careful about designing -- and using -- AI for medical diagnosis.
Technology firms should use more design fiction to explore and avoid potential negative consequences, such as AI bias.
From the law to the media we're becoming artificial humans, mere tools of the machines.
