AI News, Tech companies still care more about AI and IoT than blockchain artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is the great healthcare equalizer

Today, a woman being screened for breast cancer in a rural environment has limited chances of finding disease early compared to a woman going to an urban breast cancer center that performs more than 300 screenings a day.

I believe that next-generation technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and blockchain will change this by democratizing healthcare and providing access to care in any setting – opening up possibilities for patients and providers alike.

As trained clinicians become a diminishing and unsustainable resource, virtual care, connected health systems and powerful data analytics offer the promise of a universal standard of patient care.

As the industry shifts to value-based care, we need to bring healthcare closer to patients and make sure those who have imaging performed in rural areas can benefit from expert, “virtual” analysis independent of where the radiologist is located geographically.

In North America and Europe, a ‘hub and spoke’ model for healthcare systems is emerging, through which care is delivered primarily through ambulatory channels and outpatient clinics with a focus on better prevention and out-of-hospital care, reserving hospital visits for complex care cases.

Machine learning can find patterns in patient admission and discharges to determine which patient categories tend to overstay in hospitals – a major expense for providers – and reduce patients’ stays accordingly.

By finding patterns based on large subsets of data, AI lends greater precision to segmenting patients based on risk levels and identifying a proactive course of action to treat those deemed high-risk patients.

The future of healthcare rests on AI As with any new technology, AI comes with questions about safety, privacy and possible repercussions of combining machine systems with care delivered by humans.Adoption won’t be rapid, and there will be periods of testing to determine exactly what the technology can do and how efficiently and safely it can do it.

But I believe if you look ahead to the next five years, the course of healthcare will shift drastically – driven by economic necessity – towards standardized care regardless the setting, more accessible care, virtual solutions and experts who can provide consultation on cases around the world.

Tech companies still care more about AI and IoT than blockchain

Blockchain might be the hot buzzword of the moment, but according to new research, it’s being bested by the Internet-of-Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).

Ninety percent said they were investing in at least one of the above technologies as part of their “digital transformation strategy.” Of that 90 percent, 61 percent of respondents claimed their firm invests in blockchain.

And earlier this week, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) posted a listing for a “crypto specialist.” According to Indeed.com, there has been a 90-percent increase in blockchain, Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency related job postings between February 2018 and February 2019.
