Professor Sharona Hoffman

Professor Sharona Hoffman, co-director of the Law-Medicine Center, recently published the article, “Artificial Intelligence and Discrimination in Health Care,” in the Yale Journal of Health Policy Law and Ethics.

In the article, Hoffman argues that "algorithmic discrimination in medicine can violate civil rights laws such as Title VI and Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act when it exacerbates health disparities or perpetuates inequities. It urges that algorithmic fairness constitute a key element in designing, implementing, and validating AI and that both legal and technical tools be deployed to promote fairness.
