Speech Tilte: Transforming healthcare with AI
The healthcare sector in the world is facing challenges. These include increasing demand, rising consumer expectations, and the pressures of an aging population. These factors are straining the health workforce, increasing costs and limiting access to care.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world we live in, and it has the potential to transform struggling healthcare systems with new efficiencies, new therapies, new diagnostics, and new economies. Already, AI is having an impact on healthcare, and new prospects of far greater advances are emerging every day.
This presentation sets out how AI can bring new precision to care, with benefits for patients and for whole society.
The proposed and current uses of AI in health care are myriad. Whether it’s being used to discover links between genetic codes, to power surgical robots or even to maximize hospital efficiency, AI has been a boon to the healthcare industry.
In fact, artificial intelligence simplifies the lives of patients, doctors and hospital administrators by performing tasks that are typically done by humans, but in less time and at a fraction of the cost.
This presentation focuses on how AI transforms healthcare and the applications or examples of AI that may impact the healthcare domain, which include using AI to efficiently diagnose and reduce error, developing new medicines with AI, streamlining patient experience with AI, mining and managing medical data with AI, and AI robot-assisted surgery.
