We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 11/9 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Jon White @technursejon on the topic of “AI in Healthcare”.
The idea of Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn’t new. We’ve seen robots and intelligent computers in film and on television for decades, and read about them in science fiction novels for even longer. As the processing power of computers and computing devices has taken off, and more and more data is captured from all facets of our lives, the science fiction from our parents’ generation is becoming the reality of today.
Though we may be far from witnessing the androids popularized in film and TV, there are elements of AI that are currently in use in many industries. AI has the potential to drastically change the way we live and work.
In this #HITsm chat, Jon White (@TechNurseJon) will lead a discussion on AI in healthcare, exploring its potential and pitfalls.
Check out the questions for this week’s #HITsm chat below.
