Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad field focused on creating intelligent machines that mimic human cognitive functions. Recent advances in AI research are developing techniques to analyze vast amounts of data, identify patterns, and make predictions. The rapid advancement of AI presents both remarkable opportunities and significant challenges in healthcare and human services. AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we deliver care, improve patient outcomes, and enhance the efficiency of our services. However, this technological leap also brings a host of ethical considerations, moral responsibilities, and practical challenges that we must navigate thoughtfully.

This panel discussion features Razia Aliani, MPH, BSN; Sarah Brzeszkiewicz, MS, OTR/L; and Vera Kaelin, PhD, OT, exploring the intersection of AI, healthcare innovation, research, and entrepreneurship. The discussion focuses on how occupational therapists can navigate the complex landscape of AI applications in health and social care, emphasizing that ethical considerations are at the forefront of technological development and deployment. The panelists share their experiences and insights on AI from different perspectives, providing a comprehensive look at how AI shapes health and social care's future.
