The hottest medical AI is the assistant of doctors

  • Detail

The scope of a single set of medical devices reaches 1000 tons/year. Artificial intelligence is the assistant of doctors

medical artificial intelligence is the assistant of doctors (not spitting)

to solve human health problems, we need not only technical support, but also humanistic care. Artificial intelligence only needs to be justified in diagnosing diseases, while doctors also need love to see a doctor

recently, the world's first neuroimaging artificial intelligence "man-machine war" was held in Beijing. Artificial intelligence defeated 25 top experts in the field of neuroimaging with an accuracy of 20%. Although it is expected that computers will defeat the human brain, it has also triggered a heated debate

in recent years, medical artificial intelligence has developed rapidly. Artificial intelligence is the integrator of human's "strongest brain", which is naturally smarter than a single brain. When diagnosing diseases, the human brain will be affected by energy, emotion, environment and other factors, while artificial intelligence is consistent, calm and calm, with super stability. However, this does not mean that AI will surpass the human brain. After all, a machine is a machine. No matter how developed artificial intelligence is, it is designed by the human brain and cannot be more intelligent than human beings. Artificial intelligence is the extension of human brain, and its main function is to serve human beings. For example, there is a shortage of neuroimaging doctors in China, and clinicians are under great pressure. The emergence of neuroimaging artificial intelligence can replace doctors to complete the preliminary screening and judgment of diseases, liberate doctors from heavy and simple work, and concentrate on dealing with difficult and severe cases. At the same time, artificial intelligence can help grass-roots doctors to increase the diagnostic accuracy, so that doctors at different levels can achieve homogenization and avoid missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis to the greatest extent

ai not only has the "magic power of memory", but also has the ability of deep learning. In other words, robots can become smarter and smarter by learning from themselves and learning from mistakes. However, medical AI also has "weaknesses". For example, in the field of diseases that have been recognized, artificial intelligence is capable of doing well; In the field of diseases without consensus, artificial intelligence is unable to do what it wants. Because AI relies too much on data and lacks the ability to adapt. Data is dead, people are alive, even if the symptoms are the same, the disease may not be the same. Medicine is an uncertain science and does not pursue absolute standard answers, because people will not get sick according to textbooks. When patients have very special conditions, especially when the disease is atypical, doctors often need to make personalized and accurate diagnosis based on long-term clinical experience, by asking history, observing symptoms in the future and other auxiliary methods, rather than relying solely on data to draw conclusions. It can be seen that the "IQ" of artificial intelligence is also limited

some people worry that some doctors will be replaced by medical AI in the future. Indeed, artificial intelligence can replace or even eliminate some occupations in the future, but with a total investment of 19.9 billion yuan, the occupations that are most unlikely to be replaced must be those that pay attention to people's hearts. Medicine is a science about human beings. It focuses not only on human diseases, but also on sick people. Physical problems often lead to psychological problems. Artificial intelligence cannot observe words and expressions, nor comfort people, and cannot meet human emotional needs. Only doctors can feel the sufferings of patients and give appropriate help and comfort. Medical AI can only read data and films, while doctors can read people's joys and sorrows. Therefore, there is an essential difference between medical AI and doctors

man is the most complicated life in the world. To solve human health problems, we need not only technical support, but also humanistic care. Artificial intelligence only needs to be justified in diagnosing diseases, while doctors also need love and affection to see a doctor. Therefore, no matter how advanced technology is, the profession of doctor will not be replaced by artificial intelligence
