In an era where technology and health care are increasingly intertwined, the emergence of Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT presents both opportunities and ethical challenges. Professor Julian Savulescu will delve into the current controversies surrounding the use of LLMs in health care. This insightful talk will cover a range of critical issues, including personalised LLMs, co-creation in academic research and publication, the asymmetry of praise and blame, consent, ethical avatar and P4, Moral Guru and models of doctor-patient relationship.
