MACHINE LEARNING & AI: A HIMSS EVENT
LAS VEGAS, NV - MARCH 5, 2018
We are in an age of disruptive technology. While disruption is much needed in healthcare, transformation will require integration and collaboration. Technology, including machine learning and AI analytics, is not the solution on its own; rather it is a tool that can enable a new solution. Therefore, we must not forget the challenges of integrating technology into new or re-designed workflows and training our workforce in new or re-defined roles in order to realize the desired outcome.
In this opening keynote, renowned physician and scientist Lynda Chin takes a hard look at what else is needed for machine learning and AI to move beyond hype and deliver on its promise to transform healthcare. It is more than just the analytics. It boils down to needing:
At the end of the day, algorithms do not treat patients, doctors do. Therefore, as Chin explains, collaboration between the domain experts and the technologists will be necessary to establish the trust and transparency to drive adoption to realize the transformative impact of AI.
