How AI will transform healthcare (and can it fix the US healthcare system?)
For those who are new to AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning, I recommend taking a look at the following article entitled "An Introduction to AI." I will refer to Machine Learning and Deep Learning as being subsets of AI. Furthermore, this article is non-exhaustive in relation to potential applications of AI to healthcare and Quantum Computing to various sectors of the economy.
The reason for the focus on AI in healthcare is in light of recent articles by a few senior medical practitioners in the US expressing concern about the role of AI in healthcare.
Some of the concerns expressed, such as the need for improved sharing of data by healthcare participants including hospitals and ensuring the highest quality in the preparation of data, are entirely valid and I take the view that the need for access to data and sharing of data by hospitals may need to become a matter of political and regulatory concern. In addition, careful evaluation of ground truth for data labelling, testing, and validation of models needs to be ensured across all AI companies offering services across healthcare.
However, I remain of the view that AI and in particular Deep Learning technology will have a major role to play in healthcare in the 2020s...
