RAMON FERNANDEZ, Francisca. Artificial intelligence and civil responsability in the doctor-patient relationship: Some questions and proposals for improvement. Rev. chil. derecho tecnol. [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.1, pp.329-351. ISSN 0719-2584.

Artificial intelligence and its application in medicine change the premises of the doctor-patient relationship as we know it. The creation of medical robots and the existence of computer applications in which the new information and communication technologies are the main axis of their action determine that the relationship between, now, the machine and the patient is reviewed. To address these contents, we will reflect on robotics, and the scarce applicable community regulations to provide some clues about the so-called electronic personality, and civil liability for damages caused by robots in the medical field.

Keywords : Artificial intelligence; algorithms; legislation; medicine; patient.
