    E51 How can AI support human-centered healthcare?

    E51 How can AI support human-centered healthcare?

    At first glance, the use of AI tools and the goal of delivering increasingly person-focused healthcare might seem at odds, and that might be true except for the fact that treating patients has become incredibly complicated. Combine that with a global shortage of healthcare professionals and suddendly a clearer role for artificial intelligence begins to emerge.

    In this episode, we meet Dr. Alexandra T. Greenhill, Founder, CEO, and Chief Medical Officer of Careteam Technologies to explore how she navigates the complexities of AI in healthcare, bridging the gap between what is possible and what's happening.

    E50 How should AI be used in our universities?

    E50 How should AI be used in our universities?

    If an AI model at a university performs an analysis of a large dataset and detects a new pattern, or generates a fresh insight, who should get the credit? The algorithm? The academic? Both?

    Academic integrity is just one of the many ways in which artificial intelligence is poised to disrupt the lives of instructors and researchers at our top universities.


    Tune into this episode of the Ask AI podcast as host Melissa Kagiannakis sits down with Dr. Christian Blouin, the Institutional Lead for AI Strategy at Dalhousie University, to learn how he is supporting its faculty though the disruption created by artificial intelligence.

I’ve been waiting for a podcast like this that takes AI the startup scene, and mixes business and technical discussion in an educational way, without being boring. Make more episodes so my commute goes by faster!
