Regulatory Science on AI-based Medical Devices and Systems

Thumbnail Emerging artificial intelligence (AI) is predicted to be revolutionary in medicine and healthcare. However, AI medical systems have unique characteristics that will exhibit different behaviors compared to conventional AI applications - which need to be accounted for. In an important article, Chinzei et al. explore potential issues of AI in medical systems – the characteristics and clinical consequences of AI in medical systems, safety factors inherent to AI, and the reliability of data sets in machine learning.

Advanced Biomedical Engineering (ABE) is an Open Access, peer-reviewed journal covering all topics in biomedical engineering. The official journal of the Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering (JSMBE), ABE aims to be a vital forum for readers and authors worldwide.
