    A.I. Could Worsen Health Disparities
    One of the big problems with reliance on machine learning algorithms is placing too much faith in the results without regard for the training set used. If the data used to build the AI is flawed, then your outcomes will be still flawed. And unlike humans, people are more trustworthy of computer decisions because it is believed that is unbiased, but that is not the case at times:

    Indeed. Systemic bias often goes unrecognized and gets written into code.

    As Yahweh's Word says, people who place their trust in things instead of in Yahweh are cursed (much worse than simple health problems, or anything caused by any discrimination).

    So don't expect to find equality or justice or rightness or righteousness from men or from women in any group - it is misplaced 'trust' in any such case.

    Trying to make any group of men or women unbiased fails, and is a waste of time and energy, and leads always to dis-satisfaction, turmoil, and more injustice and unfairness.

    Trust God. Let God Accomplish all that is needed for Salvation, every day, concerning everything, always. Do what God Says, with peace and joy and righteousness as His child, in line and perfect harmony with all of His Word.
