Do you think AI can ever replace human medics in the future?
Already today, artificial intelligence algorithms help doctors diagnose diseases like cancer and can suggest which treatment may be
best for a patient. However, we still rely on human experience and also human empathy in our doctors, so at least for the foreseeable
future doctors will do a better job because they have computer aids, but they will not be fully replaced. Their job will almost certainly
change, though. Hopefully they will have to do less reporting (you know doctors need to write down everything they do so the insurance
pays for the treatment) because a computer aid does all this for the, Then they can concentrate more on the patient who is seeing them.
