We review the main ethical issues that arise in the use of AI technologies in medicine. Issues around trust, responsibility, risks of discrimination, privacy, autonomy, and potential benefits and harms are assessed. AI is a promising technology that can revolutionize, for better or worse, health care delivery. It is up to us to make it a tool for the good by ensuring ethical oversight accompanies design, development, and implementation of AI technology in clinical practice.
