Generative AI and the Future of Medical Care: an agenda for enquiry


Generative artificial intelligence challenges the familiar habits of "learned" professionals across every discipline. In law as in medicine, large language models have shown competencies that equal or outperform senior practitioners, offering startling possibilities that question our ability to conceive of future practice. The challenge is to think proactively so that the full capacity of these technologies for benefit can be realised and their capacity for harm can be contained. This meeting brings together leading thinkers and experienced practitioners to discuss how LLMs may affect the practice of medicine at grass roots level. We aim to create the outline of a broad agenda for research and discussion, focussing on primary medical care but with implications for professional practice in all contexts where individual practitioners are responsible for other individuals, with generative AI increasingly playing the role of a third party and expert informant.
