AI as a tool, not a replacement
Artificial intelligence is becoming recognized as a major feature within the healthcare landscape. Although the use of a machine learning AI system in medicine is still in its infancy, it is starting to make a difference, as this is an exciting time for research and state-of-the-art technology. “Looking into the future, I do not see a scenario where computers replace human doctors. Instead, they will make them better, more efficient, and safer,” said Dr. Jeffrey Alan Golden, chair of the Department of Pathology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “I view AI as a tool in the tool chest that healthcare works will be able to use to improve diagnosis, prognosis, treatment stratification, and the definition of intermediate treatment measures. It will assist and improve our ability to improve healthcare,” he added.
