Humanity and the Benefits of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them. In the nearly 20 years since I started medical school, I've seen the practice of medicine undergo a wholesale technological transformation. Take medical records as a simple example. I am 100% certain that today's medical students are much slower walkers than me. Because the days of sprinting on rounds to get ahead of the white coat phalanx, pull down a cabinet and open a three-ring binder chart to the next blank page before the intern reaches the door ended a decade ago.


How AI is advancing across the world map London Business School

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has gained geo-strategic importance. Russian President Vladimir Putin asserted that whoever became the leader in the field would rule the world. Countries are jostling to stay ahead of the game. China, UK, France, Germany, Finland, Canada, Japan, South Korea, India, Singapore, Mexico, Kenya, Tunisia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), among others, have released national plans to promote the development and use of AI. They are very different, each building on the country's strengths.


IoT, AR, VR to beyond with 5G - Connected World

#artificialintelligence

For this column let's consider how IoT (Internet of Things) technologies and 5G will impact medicine and healthcare. Just for a moment I think it's really important to imagine what our society will look like when we imagine real possibilities for technology beyond what we ever dreamed possible. From teaching empathy to med students to enabling telemedicine and telesurgery, the impact of technologies like AR (augmented reality), VR (virtual reality), AI (artificial intelligence), wearables, and robotics in medicine and healthcare are wide ranging and far reaching. With 5G, the possibilities seem even more endless. There are so many exciting applications of IoT technologies in the medical field.

How Will Artificial Intelligence Change Law Schools?

#artificialintelligence

Beyond the classroom curriculum, many law schools are designing experiential modes of introducing law students to artificial intelligence. At Georgia State University School of Law, for instance, the Legal Analytics and Innovation Initiative gives law students a chance to collaborate closely with computer science and business students at the same university to design complex technologies that solve previously unsolvable legal problems (such as predicting to a high degree of accuracy how a particular judge will rule in cases defined by a large set of parameters). This kind of work not only has the potential to be a flow-through to the legal practitioner space, but could over time become a mechanism for law schools to "spin out" the kinds of revenue-generating start-up businesses that are a common facet of life science departments at research universities. These programs have also been shown (according to the programs' own statistics) to help law students land jobs at higher rates than the overall student body, no doubt because the intersection of technology and law is a rare and valuable skillset in the eyes of employers.


What if AI in health care is the next asbestos? - STAT

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is often hailed as a great catalyst of medical innovation, a way to find cures to diseases that have confounded doctors and make health care more efficient, personalized, and accessible. But what if it turns out to be poison? Jonathan Zittrain, a Harvard Law School professor, posed that question during a conference in Boston Tuesday that examined the use of AI to accelerate the delivery of precision medicine to the masses. "I think of machine learning kind of as asbestos," he said. "It turns out that it's all over the place, even though at no point did you explicitly install it, and it has possibly some latent bad effects that you might regret later, after it's already too hard to get it all out."

Breakthrough research demonstrates AI can predict a psychotic break

#artificialintelligence

A trio of researchers have developed an experimental machine learning method that allows AI to listen for the early whispers of psychotic break that humans can't hear. The team, consisting of Neguine Rezaii of Harvard Medical School and Emory School of Medicine, and Elaine Walker and Philipp Wolff from Emory University's Department of Psychology, set out to see if there was any way to use language as an indicator of impending latent onset psychosis. They developed a machine learning method that looks for specific indicators long thought associated with psychosis, especially schizophrenia. The team then spent two years observing study volunteers, a significant portion of whom ended up demonstrating psychotic break (the first experience of a fully psychotic episode). The results of the study were incredible.


Your doctor may be playing medical video games at work. That could be good for your health

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Doctors can perfect their craft playing Level Ex medical video games, and even earn continuing education credits towards maintaining their licenses. Can playing video games be a prescription for good health? Two to three times a week, the UCSF/Stanford-trained internist and founder of the Turntable Health primary care clinic, is on his smartphone playing video games. "People who are good at video games are actually good at some aspects of clinical medicine." Instead, ZDoggMD, as he's known by his pseudonym as a producer of healthcare videos and live shows, is among the 400,000 medical professionals practicing the craft of medicine through a series of games from Level Ex, a Chicago videogames developer whose titles are specially designed for doctors, med students and other healthcare providers.


Thinking ahead: AI and automating corporate ethics London Business School

#artificialintelligence

The issue of corporate ethics is never far from the business media headlines. Take the troubles embroiling former Nissan chair Carlos Ghosn, or the accounting problems at Patisserie Valerie in the UK, to name just two recent examples. Despite the best intentions and efforts of policymakers, legislators, boards and professional consultants, the corporate scandals keep coming. Now, to further complicate matters, the latest developments in the digital revolution are adding a new dimension to the challenge of ensuring companies and their executives behave responsibly. Ioannis Ioannou, Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School, and Sam Baker, Monitor Deloitte Partner, suggest that, while the widespread introduction of AI and machine learning technologies can be a force for good, without the right approach there is a risk that the corporate ethics waters become even murkier.
