Artificial intelligence is often described as a black box: an unknowable, mysterious force that operates inside the critical world of health care. If it’s hard for experts to wrap their heads around at times, it’s almost impossible for patients or the general public to grasp.

Their submissions ranged from fundamental questions about how the technology works to concerns about bias and error creeping further into our health systems.
