報告：IBM 屈臣氏 AI推薦不安全的癌症治療 Report: IBM Watson AI Recommended Unsafe Cancer Treatments 系統被訓練使用不同的假設場景
The system was trained using hypothetical scenarios.
JULY 27, 2018
IBM has put its Watson artificial intelligence system to work on a variety of problems, including caring for cancer patients.
Watson's oncology system has helped care for more 84,000 patients around the world, and while the tech company says the program is a success, a Stat News report said internal documents tell a different story.
The publication reviewed the documents from 2017 in which medical experts discuss "multiple examples of unsafe and incorrect treatment recommendations."
In one example, a patient was recommended a drug that could lead to severe or fatal hemorrhage while he was already dealing with severe bleeding due to his condition. In another example, a Florida doctor who reviewed the system told the company that the technology is "a piece of shit."
IBM engineers and doctors who helped train the AI provided Watson with data about hypothetical patients and treatments instead of data from real, living patients, the report says.
The company plans to take client feedback into consideration and plans to update the system.
