Abstract: The article examines the use of artificial agents in the medical environment, considering both the positive and negative effects of their use in healthcare. The introduction of artificial intelligence into the realm of care delivery naturally raises ethical concerns, emphasizing concepts such as responsible and moral artificial intelligence. Designing ethical artificial agents capable of performing tasks traditional to humans poses complex dilemmas, and leads to the conclusion that we have a responsibility to correctly integrate them into critical areas such as health and care. In this sense, the philosophical perspective on artificial agents in health and care raises important questions about their acceptance, regulation, and ethical implications, highlighting the need for continued philosophical inquiry into the field of application of artificial agents in medicine.
Keywords: artificial agents, intelligent agents, artificial intelligence, medicine, care, healthcare.
