Artificial Intelligence in Medicine – Better More Rewarding Medicine
It was great to catch up with colleague and friend Dr. Anthony Chang (@AIMed_MD) Pediatric Cardiologist, Founder of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIMed) and Director of Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute (MI3) .
How did a pediatric cardiologist find his way into the field of Artificial Intelligence, Machine and Deep Learning?
Those of you that saw the original Watson Jeopardy Challenge
Anthony like me had the same reaction to this incredible achievement by the IBM Watson team that beat out the top 2 Jeopardy champions with an Artificial Intelligence Computer system that consumed the contents of the internet library and tested out the correct answers more frequently than the two human champions.
With a background teaching statistics augmented with an MS in Biomedical Data Science/Artificial Intelligence, he has blazed a path to attract colleagues and data geeks from around the world to participate in the future of healthcare augmented by data
For those of you challenged understanding the terminology of the space this Venn diagram is helpful in putting the various disciplines in perspective
Along the way, he like many of my other guests has discovered the value of the adjacent possible – in his case adjacent to data scientist and technologists with clinicians deeply invested in day to day clinical care – both learning from each other
We cover everything from machine learning and data science through the requirements for clinicians (or not) to gain qualifications in data science. Hear his eloquently answers the age-old question of
Will I still have a job once AI has replaced me
TL;dr – yes and it will be more rewarding
Join me as you hear how and why you should change the way you think of medicine and data. The good news is – you can participate in the next AI Med event which mixes specialist, clinicians, data geeks and patients from around the world in a unique experience that offers a great learning and mind opening experience.
