Speech Title: AI in Healthcare: State of the Art, Current Trends and Future Possibilities
Abstract: Artificial intelligence in healthcare has been a particularly hot research topic in recent years. Artificial intelligence has come a long way since it was first established as a field in 1956. It has been playing a critical role in industries for decades. AI has only recently begun to take a leading role in healthcare. A recent McKinsey review predicted healthcare as one of the top five industries with more than 50 use cases that would involve AI. This transformative technology is revolutionizing the health sectors in many ways, from drug development to clinical research; AI has helped improve patient outcomes at reduced costs. Numerous applications of AI such as virtual assistants, robotic assisted surgery, are well positioned to improve patient care and potentially save lives. While there is a sense of great potential in the application of AI in healthcare, there are also concerns of privacy, accuracy, data ownership, integrity, data usability about it. This talk will highlight the current applications, future innovations and possible issues of AI applications in healthcare.
