WEBINAR: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Near Future


Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Near Future of Health Care Delivery 

Course Curriculum
Many individuals who follow Silicon Valley’s research and development efforts are predicting that the next few decades will witness the greatest cultural and socioeconomic upheavals in the history of humankind.  While some scholars are deeply anxious over these projections, others are markedly optimistic and claim that artificial intelligence (AI) may bring about unprecedented improvements in standards of living throughout the world.  One thing is certain, however:  the nature and delivery of health care in industrially advanced countries will be exquisitely affected, largely owing to the myriad of technologies that have developed over the last thirty years and which will be vastly improved (and likely replaced) by new developments in AI.

This presentation will examine some of these prognostications.  Especially targeted will be the ways that AI improvements in electronic health records and “machine learning” for diagnostic, prognostic, and treatment intervention purposes may accelerate the quality of health care delivery beyond anything we have today.
 
Learning Objectives 
At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to: 
1. Describe the current use of artificial "narrow" intelligence and AI developments, and how they may impact various health care disciplines that rely on image analysis such as radiology, pathology and dermatology. 
2. List various ways that AI technologies may turn electronic health records into mechanisms of disease prediction (and prevention) and associated treatment planning.
3. Imagine and describe what an office visit to a primary care provider who has "standard" AI technology might resemble in 10-20 years. 
4. List ways that contemporary health professionals may have to re-imagine their professional responsibilities if AI technologies replace and number of them over the next decade. 

Target Audience
This session is recommended for all healthcare personnel.
