“Some people call it artificial intelligence but the reality is, this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we’ll augment our intelligence.“
-Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM
Artificial intelligence (AI) has quickly turned every industry upside-down. Many people fear that AI will replace humans in the workplace and with that, take away our jobs; they think that in the future, diagnosis and treatment will depend on an algorithm.
But many others see AI not as a development that will replace us, but one that will add value. Rather than intelligence that will replace us, AI brings intelligence that enhances our own.
In this issue, the New York Times covers how AI could assist physicians, research from the University of Warwick shows how AI could help radiologists prioritize X-rays, and how AI can help the American Centers for Disease Control to track Influenza.
Hope you have a good week.
