This week we look into how AI is being used in healthcare, finding out how it can help speed up diagnoses, reduce errors and help discover new drugs. However, when the stakes are high and it’s a matter of life and death, can artificial intelligence be trusted to make the decisions?
AI is making great leaps into healthcare, reducing errors and speeding up the diagnosis process. This report gives a broad overview of the different areas of healthcare that AI is being used in and how it is directly affecting the care patients receive.
30 times faster than humans and with a 99% rate of accuracy, AI is being used to accurately predict breast cancer risk and reduce the current rate of false positives leading to 1 in 2 unnecessary biopsies.
As well as diagnosing potential diseases, AI is being used to help speed up and reduce the huge costs of drug development.
In this video, Ken Mulvany, the founder of a biomedical AI company, talks about the incredible power of AI for digesting data and scientific knowledge. He then explains how this tech has been used to cure diseases that humans have been puzzling over for decades.
When it’s life and death decisions, will doctors ever be able to trust AI generated recommendations that are different to their own?
