#artificialintelligence

MIT and Mass General Brigham researchers and physicians connect in person to bring AI into mainstream health care. Even as rapid improvements in artificial intelligence have led to speculation over significant changes in the health care landscape, the adoption of AI in health care has been minimal. A 2020 survey by Brookings, for example, found that less than 1 percent of job postings in health care required AI-related skills. The Abdul Latif Jameel Clinic for Machine Learning in Health (Jameel Clinic), a research center within the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing, recently hosted the MITxMGB AI Cures Conference in an effort to accelerate the adoption of clinical AI tools by creating new opportunities for collaboration between researchers and physicians focused on improving care for diverse patient populations. Once virtual, the AI Cures Conference returned to in-person attendance at MIT's Samberg Conference Center on the morning of April 25, welcoming over 300 attendees primarily made up of researchers and physicians from MIT and Mass General Brigham (MGB).


Can artificial intelligence overcome the challenges of the health care system?

MIT President L. Rafael Reif began the event by welcoming attendees and speaking to the "transformative capacity of artificial intelligence and its ability to detect, in a dark river of swirling data, the brilliant patterns of meaning that we could never see otherwise."


How AI is transforming remote cardiac care for patients - MedCity News

#artificialintelligence

The pandemic accelerated the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) in remote patient care. Physicians are increasingly using digital patient monitoring to better track health data, identify abnormalities, and provide patient-specific treatment -- all without the need for in-person interaction. Additionally, emergency departments are employing remote monitoring solutions to allow some patients to leave the hospital sooner. These transformative technologies are leading to better outcomes for patients and reduced healthcare costs. AI use cases continue to grow in healthcare, as constant learning and training of algorithms results in smarter technology as well as improved patient experiences. Most AI applications in healthcare use "augmented intelligence," which curates the algorithms' output to provide clinicians with direction on "where to look" when they get the analysis.


Google confirms Pixel Watch coming this fall and more digital health briefs

#artificialintelligence

After months of rumors, Google announced its own smartwatch, called the Pixel Watch, will be coming this fall. Although the tech giant has supported smartwatches through its wearable operating system and completed its acquisition of Fitbit last year, this is Google's first branded smartwatch. The Pixel Watch will have a circular, domed design made with recycled stainless steel and customizable bands. Even though the watch also has plenty of features not concerned with health tracking, Rick Osterloh, Google's senior vice president of devices and services, teased the Pixel Watch's "deep integration" with Fitbit that will include heart rate and sleep tracking as well as workout metrics users can measure against their goals. Meanwhile, Google is entering a crowded market for health-tracking wearables, with competitors like Apple, Amazon, Samsung, Withings and Garmin.


Invest in Beyond Imagination: The World's Most Advanced Humanoid Robot

#artificialintelligence

Beomni creates jobs by enabling physical work to be done through the robot anywhere in the world from the comfort of your home or office. We completed Phase 1 in 2021, building and commercially beta testing Beomni, the world's first General Purpose Humanoid Robot. And we completed the cognitive architectural design of its Omni-Purpose AI Brain and Cloud Platform. Join us in completing Phase 2 as we bring Beomni to market and complete development of its Omni-Purpose AI Brain. In some parts of the world, there are too few workers where they are desperately needed, while elsewhere there are billions of people, living in poverty, who are willing to work. Beomni is the solution, allowing people to work anywhere and revolutionizing trillion-dollar markets around the world.

FDA Clears World's First AI-Driven Portable 3D Breast Ultrasound Scanner

#artificialintelligence

This week iSono Health announced FDA clearance of the company's ATUSA System for breast imaging. This is world's first AI-driven portable and automated 3D breast ultrasound scanner. In just 2 minutes, the ATUSA system automatically scans the entire breast volume, independent of operator expertise, and offers 3D visualization of the breast tissue. The ATUSA system is designed from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with advanced machine learning models that will give physicians a comprehensive set of tools for decision making and patient management. This is the first of several intended FDA submissions for the company.



How A.I. Is Finding New Cures in Old Drugs

#artificialintelligence

In the elegant quiet of the café at the Church of Sweden, a narrow Gothic-style building in Midtown Manhattan, Daniel Cohen is taking a break from explaining genetics. He moves toward the creaky piano positioned near the front door, sits down, and plays a flowing, flawless rendition of "Over the Rainbow." If human biology is the scientific equivalent of a complicated score, Cohen has learned how to navigate it like a virtuoso. Cohen was the driving force behind Généthon, the French laboratory that in December 1993 produced the first-ever "map" of the human genome. He essentially introduced Big Data and automation to the study of genomics, as he and his team demonstrated for the first time that it was possible to use super-fast computing to speed up the processing of DNA samples.


Focus on humans -- The grail for healthcare technology & automation

#artificialintelligence

Healthcare is one of the most complex products our economy produces. Over the next 50 years, global health megatrends will change dramatically & we are headed to face increased risks of exposure to new, emerging and re-emerging diseases, new pandemics with surging globalisation, all putting a huge pressure on the healthcare system. Massive variations in health status, lack of access to quality health care, poor health outcomes and increasing cost of care are huge concerns globally. The Freaking future of healthcare pushes us to achieve a more intuitive, responsive, empathetic, cost effective and safer health systems. Only possible when the entire ecosystem & the stakeholders raise the collective expectations of how the system performs today.
