Abstract: There is no doubt that artificial intelligence, advanced machine learning and Big Data shapes the future of personalized healthcare and precision medicine. While offering amazing possibilities, these technologies will also disrupt traditional value chains and structures in the health sector. This will in turn effect the applicable legal and regulatory frameworks. Some areas of law will remain valid through creative judicial interpretations. Other areas of law, however, are in need of significant reforms or might even have to be conceived from the scratch. This contribution provides a systematic overview of the most crucial legal challenges that are currently emerging. It will also sketch out how some of these legal issues interconnect and in which specific areas they crystallize.
