AI & Mental Health

The deployment of AI systems in healthcare has raised significant concerns about rights and justice, but also hopes of new clinical and biomedical benefits. Focusing on mental health, in particular, the two workshops aim to shed new light on these much-debated topics by proposing a transdisciplinary approach to AI and mental health.

AI & Mental Health I. The Politics of Digital Health

Date

November 8, 4-6:30 pm

Presentation

The first workshop aims to clarify the political, social and economic implications of AI deployment in global health policy. It explores the politics of digital health as involving questions ranging from the privacy and fairness of AI systems, to the global regulation of technology companies, to the set of normative assumptions about social good, justice, and health underlying digital health policies.

Speakers

Prof. Dr. Tamar Sharon, Radboud University 

Dr. Saheli Burton, University College London

AI & Mental Health II. Psychological effects of interactions between minds and AI

Date

December 13, 2:30-6:30 pm

Presentation

The purpose of the second workshop is to explore new perspectives on two related recent topics discussed by psychologists and philosophers of cognitive science: How do our interactions with AI technology shape our minds and affect our mental health? And is cognition (the mind in general) solely realized in the brain, or partly extended into computer technology such as AI systems? Through an interdisciplinary approach, this workshop investigate the nature of people's increasingly more intimate psychological connection with AI systems, the influence of AI systems on mental health, and the potential epistemic risks of so-called 'brain machine interfaces (BMI)'.

Speakers

Prof. Dr. Joanna Bryson, Hertie School 

Jun. Prof. Dr. med. Dr. Orsolya Friedrich, LMU

Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Hildt, Illinois Institute of Technology
