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.


4 Industries Being Transformed by Machine Learning and Robotics

@machinelearnbot

Robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data platforms go hand-in-hand. Especially in modern society, it's extremely common to find these technologies working together. Each has also improved and revolutionized the world in myriad ways. Robotics, for example, altered productivity completely -- especially in the manufacturing and assembly market. Machine learning and AI are contributing to automation systems, which can replace human workers entirely.


The future of robotics: 10 predictions for 2017 and beyond

ZDNet

IDC predicts that 35 percent of leading organizations in logistics, health, utilities, and resources will explore the use of robots to automate operations by 2019. What does the future hold for robotics? It's hard to say, given the rapid pace of change in the field as well as in associated areas such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. But one thing seems certain: Robots will play an increasingly important role in business and life in general. Research firm International Data Corp's (IDC) Manufacturing Insights Worldwide Commercial Robotics program recently unveiled its top 10 predictions for worldwide robotics for 2017 and beyond.

PATH: New Organization Fostering AI, Automation and Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Technological advances in artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and robotics--once only dreamed of--are beginning to take shape and are promising to revolutionize healthcare and biotechnology. By 2021, AI alone could generate $6.7 billion in revenue from healthcare globally according to Frost & Sullivan. Some of the frontrunning scientists and physicians, who have worked toward AI and robotics advances for decades, spoke at the recent first annual Partnership for Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Robotics in Healthcare (PATH) Summit, offering a distinct message: As these advanced technologies become integrated into healthcare and biotechnology there will be a significant change in the development and delivery of medicine resulting in improved outcomes, increased productivity, and wider dissemination. It is clear that doctors, health systems, and research institutes who don't embrace this new wave of technology will be left behind. PATH--a mission-driven, membership-based group launched by Jonathan Linkous, founding CEO of the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), and Mary Ann Liebert, publisher & CEO of Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN), is dedicated to bringing together all stakeholders involved in the advancement of AI, automation, and robotics, to help guide policy related to its use and to promote its integration into health systems.
