Focused on the rapid adoption of artificial intelligence within global healthcare, which has accelerated during the Covid-19 pandemic, the proposal identifies an urgent need to better understand the challenges and potential solutions by which policymakers at the national and global levels can ensure the benefits of AI are fully realised in the public interest.
The proposal states the research question as follows: How are governance structures emerging in response to the rapidly accelerating role of AI in global healthcare, and what are the implications for the distribution of power in global politics?
The question includes two key aspects:
- how institutional actors (i.e. states and international governmental organisations) are responding, and their relationship to private actors currently leading these developments;
- the wider social context in which civil society, professional medical associations, but also everyday individuals relate to, and experience, these processes guiding the future of global politics.
