When it came to understanding and fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, governments across the globe called on the most advanced healthcare technologies available. Chief among these was artificial intelligence, which played a key role in tracing the virus and understanding its spread. As a result, AI’s use in the healthcare field has advanced at a rapid pace, possibly compressing nearly two years' worth of digital transformation into just a few months.

While the pandemic has both created and highlighted major AI advancements in the healthcare field, it’s also brought to the fore the need to continue advancing the technology — and the gains that can be made in doing so.

These advantages are already evident at the Defense Innovation Unit, which has contracted with Google Cloud to prototype an AI-enabled digital pathology solution that aims to improve predictive cancer diagnoses at select DoD facilities.

On this episode of AI: Gov Reimagined, Dr. Niels Olson, the DIU chief medical officer and originator of the Predictive Health project, Dr. Craig Mermel, senior staff research scientist at Google Health, and Google Cloud’s Head of Defense Intelligence Sales Scott Frohman, discuss the possibilities of AI in healthcare, the project the DIU is undertaking around predictive cancer diagnoses, and how AI and augmented reality can move the needle on patient outcomes and cost.
