Is AI Health Care a problem with trust? – By Dr. John Halamka and Paul Serrato (@MayoPlatform) – Many doctors ignore the recommendations provided by machine learning algorithms because they do not trust them. Several ingenious software improvements can give them more confidence in the diagnostic and therapeutic proposals of the algorithm. While developers continue to provide innovative artificial intelligence tools that have the potential to redefine medical practice, most physicians and nurses lack the data science experience needed to fully understand what lies “under the hood,” one of the reasons which is why many are reluctant to include recommendations for diagnosis and treatment coming from these algorithms.
Does the prevention of falling with artificial intelligence take up sitting on the body? – By Rose Watson (@VirtuSense) – As technology becomes more and more entrenched in the world of medicine, telesyters have become the preferred solution for hospitals trying to reduce falls without the cost of personal sitting.
