How health care orgs are addressing AI challenges

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is poised to revolutionize health care, in everything from drug research, to diagnostics, to health care delivery -- all the way through to billing and accounting. But to get there, organizations need to overcome distrust of the technology, meet integration challenges, and deal with privacy and security issues. Boston-based Beacon Health Options, which provides behavioral health treatment to more than 40 million people in all 50 states, faced all those challenges when it first turned to AI to help improvement treatment. Get the latest insights with our CIO Daily newsletter. "Beacon is the largest company solely focused on behavioral health in the country," says Christina Mainelli, the organization's executive vice president and chief growth officer.


What doctor? Why AI and robotics will define New Health

#artificialintelligence

Modern health systems can treat and cure more diseases than ever before. New technology is bringing innovation to old treatments. Yet significant quality, access and cost issues remain and our health systems are becoming increasingly unsustainable. The emergence and increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will have a significant impact on healthcare systems around the world. How will AI and robotics define New Health?

Are Home Health Aides The New Turing Test For AI?

#artificialintelligence

AI is changing work but work will change AI too.Getty What does it mean for a machine to be intelligent? For decades, the common answer to that question has been to pass the "Turing test." This test, named after famed mathematician Alan Turing, says that if a machine can carry on a conversation with a human via a textual interface such that the human can not tell the difference between a human and machine, then the machine is intelligent.

I used this book as a textbook for a special topics course on computational biomedicine that I taught twice so far at a graduate level. The book offered the foundational knowledge level for the course. The CI part is basic and needs good support, and that was not a problem, given that I cater to an engineering audience. No matter how good a book is for a graduate course, you would still need to offer support through readings from recent journal and conference publications. Yet, this book was good enough to put students on track for doing basic experiments using some of its researched ideas and works.
