When British charity The Samaritans was forced to abandon its'Radar' Twitter app in 2014, many in the health community worried that emerging AI technology was poorly suited to the sensitivity of mental illness.


Doctors Of Future: Artificial Intelligence – Becoming Human – Medium

#artificialintelligence

All of us have been in a hospital for one or another reason and are aware of the medical procedures that follow during initial check up and diagnosis. Sometimes it gets a lot tedious to get so many tests done before a diagnosis is made and even some of the diseases reach a stage where they become incurable before their clinical diagnosis, like cancers.


Artificial intelligence is helping physicians move the bar on clinical value -- Here's how

#artificialintelligence

Clinical documentation is key to demonstrating value in outcomes-based medicine. Complete documentation helps to validate patient outcomes by reflecting the severity of a patient's medical condition, sharing key data with subsequent caregivers and optimizing claims processing and reimbursement.


Artificial intelligence and the healthcare sector - Information Age

Computers that can teach themselves from routine clinical data are potentially better at predicting cardiovascular risk than current standard medical risk models, according to new research at the University of Nottingham.


Chatbots Will Serve As Health Assistants - The Medical Futurist

#artificialintelligence

With the appearance of intelligent personal assistants (IPA) supported by machine learning such as Siri on iOS or Alexa for Amazon, the above scene does not sound like science fiction anymore. If we also consider how Cognitoys support the cognitive development of small children with the help of AI in a fun and gentle way, personal health assistants on our phones suddenly become definite responses for certain needs. They can make our lives more comfortable and they could pay attention to our very personal wishes through constant learning – which might also have some downsides.


Artificial Intelligence is Completely Transforming Modern Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

As medical imaging technology continues to take advantage of every new deep learning breakthrough, the challenge is that the computing technology on which it relies must evolve just as quickly. A company called Nvidia is leading that charge under the guidance of Kimberley Powell, who is confident that Nvidia's processors are not only meeting the deep learning standards of medical imagining, but also pushing the industry forward as a whole.


This prosthetic arm is powered by Bluetooth and your mind

Robotic limbs aren't a new technology, though the range of motion and strength of such limbs continue to improve. Controlling prosthetics with your mind is another area of refinement, but they're typically connected directly to a patient's brain. A new technique where the robotic arm clicks directly to the bone, however, is showing promise. Johan Baggerman is the first patient in the Netherlands to get a click-on prosthetic arm that he can control with his mind.


AI report fed by DeepMind, Amazon, Uber urges greater access to public sector data sets

#artificialintelligence

What are tech titans Google, Amazon and Uber agitating for to further the march of machine learning technology and ultimately inject more fuel in the engines of their own dominant platforms? Unsurprisingly, they're after access to data.
