Learn about the evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI), its history, its current and future uses in medicine, and potential problems by attending Artificial Intelligence in Medicine.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly advancing field with great potential to influence a variety of disciplines, including medicine. The development of AI is built on a history of dramatic improvements in both computer hardware as well as computational algorithms that create the necessary infrastructure. Applications of AI to the field of medicine have already begun to be realized, but the potential for far greater impact over the coming years is very likely to be realized. In areas ranging from diagnostics, to imaging, to clinical operations, to molecular medicine, and to education, AI holds the promise of improving our practice as physicians and potentially restoring humanism to medicine.
In this session, Dr. Loscalzo will provide an overview of AI, its history, its current and future uses in medicine, and potential problems to which we must be attentive. The opportunities for AI in medicine are truly exciting, but it must be applied in a thoughtful way for its broad, integrated, and successful use in medical practice and education.
