Artificial intelligence (AI) is not intelligent in the human meaning-AI works on the basis of algorithms created by humans and the results of AI are based on real-world data. AI is regulated by all legal frameworks that also apply in other scenarios, in particular data protection law and medical device law. AI delivers results that are as good as the database that formed the learning content of the AI enables. If, for example, the data on which the AI is based contain discrimination, this discrimination is "learned" by the AI; since the AI does not really think, the AI cannot reflect its own results either-it can only make a comparison within the parameters of the specifications by the software developers. If AI is used, the question of the algorithms implemented and the database on which the decision is based must therefore be clarified beforehand and a check must be carried out based on this to determine whether the AI is suitable for use. Due to the missing possibility of real human thinking, AI cannot replace physicians, but can assist them in their daily work.
