Google DeepMind’s NHS deal under scrutiny

”A deal between Google’s artificial intelligence firm DeepMind and the UK’s NHS had serious “inadequacies”, an academic paper has suggested.
More than a million patient records were shared with DeepMind to build an app to alert doctors about patients at risk of acute kidney injury (AKI).

The authors said that it was “inexcusable” patients were not told how their data would be used.

Google’s DeepMind said that the report contained “major errors”.  It told the BBC that it was commissioning its own analysis and rebuttal, which the authors said they welcomed.

When the deal between London’s Royal Free Hospital and DeepMind became public in February 2016, some three months after the data started to be collected, it caused controversy over the amount of patient information being shared and the lack of public consultation.”
