Stephen K Y Wong jointly contributed an article entitled “Mapping ethico-legal principles for the use of artificial intelligence in gastroenterology” with Professor Dr Joseph J Y Sung (former Vice-chancellor and Dean of Faculty of Medicine of the Chinese University of Hong Kong) and Professor Stewart of Sydney Law School.
