The End of Human Doctors – The Bleeding Edge of Medical AI Research (Part 1)

More than any other part of this blog series, what we talk about today will have the most impact on whether machines are going to replace doctors anytime soon. We are going to start exploring the cutting edge of research in medical automation. In the previous articles in this series, we simply assumed deep learning can automate medical tasks. … Continue reading The End of Human Doctors – The Bleeding Edge of Medical AI Research (Part 1)

The End of Human Doctors – Understanding Regulation

Today we are talking about medical regulation, which is the last part of our foundation. After this we will be able to assess current research and predict the future of medicine. If you don't know already, all medical systems, devices, and treatments are regulated. The level of oversight varies, but any technology which has direct impact on … Continue reading The End of Human Doctors – Understanding Regulation

The End of Human Doctors – Understanding Automation

It turns out that deep learning is a very good match for some of the most time consuming (and therefore costly) parts of medicine: the perceptual tasks. We also saw that many decisions simply fall out of the perceptual … Continue reading The End of Human Doctors – Understanding Automation
