Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare: What Does the Future Hold?
Even though healthcare professionals seem to be skeptical about the use of artificial intelligence in their practice, this article presents a few use cases where AI could add value to healthcare, especially in areas where it could excel beyond the abilities of humans.
Artificial intelligence has not been popular lately. Leading thinkers have attacked the concept—Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates have both voiced their concern. In a BBC interview, Hawking explains that the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.
Some people in me dicine, however, don’t think that way. It’s worth a look at different alternatives and use cases of how artificial intelligence could potentially bring value to the process of healthcare delivery and the treatment of diseases. Which options the healthcare community would then embrace is up to health leaders and patients to decide.
But can artificial intelligence and machine learning act as an enabler for changes in medicine and healthcare? Here's our Global VPL, Healthcare, Eugene Borukhovich trying to answer the question what the future of AI in healthcare is.
The big question we may want to ask is, ‘How can machine learning and artificial intelligence become a greater enabler for healthcare and its participating players?’ The time is right to ask doctors and pharmaceutical companies what problems they have, and how AI could help solve them.
