    The influence of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine is evolving rapidly in today’s society. The basic assumption behind this technology is to produce health practices more reliable, accurate, efficient, and cheaper than traditional medicine, based on human reasoning. The alternative pathway is to create machine-learning algorithms that will assist part or the totality of the processes of decision-making in medical contexts. The goal of this seminar is to discuss the ethical problem that arises with the use of "Black-Box Medicine" and to discuss three solutions that can be offered to solve this problem.
