The deadly perils of not investing in medical AI

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has a public relations problem in Australia. It’s been coming so long, with such hype and promise, and failed to deliver so spectacularly – IBM Watson and cancer diagnosis, as the most recent example – many in the sector aren’t really sure what is going on.

Last month, one of our most recognised experts in the field of medical AI, Professor Enrico Coiera, The Director of the Australian Institute of Health Informatics, made the situation clear. Medical AI is here and gathering momentum, and unless we organise ourselves faster for this change we could miss out on significant opportunities locally, or worse, end up with AI medical failures through poor governance and education.
