Most artificial intelligence applications focus on optimizing their predictions. However, machine learning algorithms should not be focused solely on accuracy but should be evaluated with respect to how they might impact disparities in patient outcomes. AI researchers must explore ways to reduce machine learning bias in healthcare or explain how to create algorithms that specifically alleviate inequalities
To prevent artificial intelligence (AI) from encoding the disparities that exist, algorithms should predict an outcome as if the world were fair.
