Artificial Intelligence is already impacting our day-to-day lives, but in healthcare it may be truly life-changing. AI applications are now being utilized in clinical research, drug development, insurance claims, diagnosis, and treatment.
Will Artificial Intelligence further dehumanize medicine and increase existing disparities in healthcare, or will it improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs? Can this technology be implemented in an ethical way? How will AI be regulated?
Our very own systemwide CIO, Tom Andriola, addressed these topics and much more as a guest on KALW’s City Visions, hosted by Joseph Pace. He was joined by I. Glenn Cohen (professor of law at Harvard Law School and faculty director at the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics) and Dr. Matthew Lungren (assistant professor in pediatric radiology and associate director of the Stanford Center for Articial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging).
