AI is a key part of the plan as two groups with little in common come together over health disparities that have only been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘We find that two factors reduce lay judgment of liability: following standard care and following the recommendation of AI tools.’

AI will not earn a place in the daily practice of medicine until its developers definitively answer some pressing questions on fitness and appropriateness.

In the late 1700s the English social theorist Jeremy Bentham sketched out a prison in which a single guard could control hundreds of inmates. The trick was to let the men know they could be seen 24/7 while the guard on duty was hidden from their view.  

A generation gap may be emerging within the gold rush of computer scientists and software developers racing to weaponize AI for the fight against COVID-19.

The COVID crisis has significantly increased the volume of data healthcare providers are rushing into the cloud. This “smash and grab” behavior is largely explained by the spike in healthcare workers doing their jobs remotely.

With so many eyes fixed on New York City as the “epicenter” of the COVID-19 crisis in the U.S., it might go unnoticed at the national level that nearly 60,000 infections could be recorded some 150 miles to the north by June 8.

Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott surely didn’t see the coronavirus coming when he was writing his new book on AI. But with the title’s April 7 release, he’s perceiving the pandemic as equal parts threat and opportunity.

Any interested party can now see state-by-state forecasts for peak hospitalization vs. capacity due to COVID-19 over the coming four months.

AI experts are being tasked with addressing the new coronavirus pandemic and using machine learning to mine a new dataset released by The White House.

Nearly two-thirds of hospitals are hoping to implement robotic process automation and AI technologies in the next two years, according to a new survey of healthcare executives.

AI’s impact on healthcare continues to grow, with specialties such as radiology and cardiology fully embracing the technology’s potential to modify workflows and improve patient outcomes. Family medicine physicians, however, have been slow to embrace this growing trend.
