ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (A.I.) IN MEDICINE
WHEN CAN IT BE EXPECTED TO GO LIVE?
From the Physician’s Desk….Queen, Your Clinician and Cancer Advocate!
What is Artificial Intelligence?
- A computer mind that thinks like a human.
- It can either save us or destroy – see 3 videos below.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not new. We see it all around us with auto-pilot cars, floor cleaners, Siri, among other daily use items. Now, the inevitable is here – AI in medicine, more specifically, AI in Oncology and cancer treatment recommendations.
Recently, I was at a conference and had the pleasure of listening to an IBM representative speaking about IBM Watson Health. Interesting.
- How will this work for you and your Oncology Team?
- Will this lead to less physicians throughout clinics and/or hospitals?
- Will this lead to having physicians as “Team Leaders” while A.I. see patients for us and report the information for interpretation?
Will A.I. replace my Doctor?
We are told “No”…. so we are told. Artificial Intelligence is expected to supplement the knowledge of the oncologist, and other physicians and staff. The videos below shows how A.I. quickly scans recent updates, guidelines and publication and presents the physicians with the information and plausible options. Great! So why not give the information directly to the patient? Because it still need to be interpreted to a level that the patient can understand. Will the A.I. be able to do that soon as well? The automated car assembly lines come to mind.
Cautiously supportive. Our smartest computer is still blind…
