How is Computer Vision Making a Difference in Healthcare?

#artificialintelligence

Computer vision has made the transition from being the subject of sci-fi movies to an actual technology which you can find in top hospitals. This visual branch of artificial intelligence is helping more doctors better diagnose patients, prescribe the right treatments and monitor the evolution various diseases. Technopedia defines computer vision as a distinctive field of computer science which helps computers to see, identify, and process images in a way which is similar to the way humans perform this task. It is part of artificial intelligence since to identify objects and take decisions based on what it sees it is necessary to make an in-depth analysis. Predicting the applications of a computer vision solution for medical use has to do with extending current ways this technology is already being used and adding a layer of creativity and imagination.


How robots are helping doctors save lives in the Canadian North

Robohub

It is the middle of the winter and a six-month-old child is brought with acute respiratory distress to a nursing station in a remote community in the Canadian North. The nurse realizes that the child is seriously ill and contacts a pediatric intensivist located in a tertiary care centre 900 kilometres away. The intensivist uses her tablet to activate a remote presence robot installed in the nursing station and asks the robot to go to the assessment room. The robot autonomously navigates the nursing station corridors and arrives at the assessment room two minutes later. With the help of the robot's powerful cameras, the doctor "sees" the child and talks to the nurse and the parents to obtain the medical history.

Will an AI take YOUR job? Expert reveals the most at risk careers

Daily Mail

Fitness trainer - Will customize programs for each of us, provide companionship, and create a forcing function for us not to procrastinate. Elderly caretaker - While AI can help with monitoring, security, and perhaps movement of the elderly, only human assistants can help with bathing, dressing, and most importantly conversation and keeping company. These are not doable by AI. Nurse - Nurses, child care workers, mental health support specialists, and drug rehabilitation therapists are among the most difficult for machines to replicate, because of the high degree of human interaction, communications, and trust-building. Concierge - While standard services are handled by the Internet (travel websites), and AI (autonomous fast-food and coffee), there will be a larger premium offered to substantially better services with a human touch, personalization, and long-term relationship and trust.


Nurse robot Moxi gets schooled by Texas nurses

ZDNet

A robot named Moxi, designed to help nurses, has concluded its first real-world trial in a Texas hospital. Designed by Boston-based Diligent Robotics, the trial was designed to test a collaborative automation integration in a working hospital. Robots are widely seen as one potential tool to help relieve strain on healthcare workers like nurses. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for nurses in the U.S. is set to grow from 2.7 million in 2014 to 3.2 million in 2024, an increase of 16 percent. Much of the growth will be driven by aging baby boomers who need additional care.


What To Know About How Artificial Intelligence Is Shaping Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

There isn't any question that artificial intelligence is a transformative technology that will continue to completely change the way every human being operates in the modern world. One of the major industries where artificial intelligence has influence in healthcare. You can debate on how and where you want your healthcare delivered, but artificial intelligence will make healthcare much more efficient and accessible for us all. In fact, artificial intelligence may be able to find congenital heart defects in children before they are born. Just think of all the lives that can be saved using this exact technology.


Robot skills will make surgeons out of nurses

#artificialintelligence

Caesareans and other routine operations will be done by nurses as the rise of robots means common procedures do not need a hands-on surgeon, according to an expert review. Nanorobots will fix the body from the inside, augmented reality headsets will allow surgeons to "see through" the body and 3-D printed organs will offer a ready supply of spare parts, a commission on surgery over the next 20 years predicts. Hundreds of thousands of patients with conditions such as cancer could also be spared surgery altogether as advances in genetic analysis allow personalised treatment at a much earlier stage of the disease, the review for the Royal College of Surgeons says.


Artificial Intelligence: Disruption Ahead

#artificialintelligence

According to many, AI is likely to take over 20-50% of jobs over the next decade or two, and significantly disrupt almost every other job. Many specialties lie at the cutting edge of this transformation, while others will perhaps see only small changes in the short term. Some white-collar jobs and specialties will be unrecognizable or will vanish entirely, while some specialties will potentially soar by putting AI tools in the hands of specialists. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is probably going to disrupt many occupations and tasks, but sometimes the media will sketch unlikely or fanciful scenarios that leave us more mystified than informed. Sometimes this is because the articles offer vague details that seem disconnected from the flourish in the headline.


Why artificial intelligence won't replace doctors

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is coming to healthcare. In fact, in areas such as radiology and cancer detection, it's already here in places, and is poised to become ever more prevalent in the industry. Which naturally raises a question for nurses and physicians: Is AI coming for my job? At least according to experts we interviewed for our Focus on Artificial Intelligence. That said, both AI and machine learning are in a prime position to alter clinical workflows and physician training.


Google is making an "AI-powered assistant for nurses and doctors"

#artificialintelligence

The app does this by consolidating all of a patient's medical data. Everyone treating the patient can enter information into their file directly from the app, and the app can then send alerts to healthcare workers as soon as signs of a potentially life-threatening problem arise. Streams is currently used under very narrow conditions: only by workers at specific U.K. facilities and only for the detection of acute kidney injury. With Google's full support, though, the app could very well become the go-to medical tool of healthcare professional across the globe. And seemingly nothing would make the DeepMind team happier.
