Abstract

The entrance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a new actor in the doctor-patient relationship has encouraged important legal and ethical considerations among the experts. On the one hand, there is the request to establish a new and dedicated legal background involving AI and AI-related technologies, while others believe there is no need to add new laws in the attempt to define AI's role in healthcare. The aim of this paper is to analyse the possible role of AI in civil liability in healthcare practice, underlining its limits of autonomy in a field where the attribution of liability cannot be uncertain.
