Doctor AI AI: Hype vs. Reality

    • Technology

If you’ve been to a medical facility recently, you may have already had some of your healthcare provided for you by AI. Massive amounts of raw medical data have been compiled since medical imaging hit the scene, and with computing power up to the task, it can now be harnessed in novel, fascinating ways: diagnosing life-threatening diseases, plus assessing risk of disease and pregnancy complications. And that’s just the start.

With any new technology comes risk: More data can improve diagnosis, treatment, healthcare and operational efficiency, but sensitive data requires stringent security measures. It’s one thing if someone steals your credit card … quite another altogether if someone steals your DNA. Data scientists and security experts are working tirelessly to make sure AI’s arrival into the medical arena is a seamless, secure one.

Host Jessica Chobot checks in for a checkup and is joined on her wellness journey by Dave Graham of Dell Technologies, Eran Orr, Founder & CEO of AR/VR health startup XR Health, Dekel Gelbman of Boston biotech firm FDNA, and Joe Marks, Executive Director of the Center for Machine Learning and Health at Carnegie-Mellon University.

Can fully autonomous AI replace doctors, nurses, clinicians and surgeons? Will AI give Jessica a clean bill of health? Find out in this episode of Hype v. Reality. And head to our YouTube channel to watch Jessica's VR session.
