Healthcare AI with Neil Jacobstein

One of my early sessions at the HIMSS 2019 annual conference was the CHIME-HIMSS keynote speaker, Neil Jacobstein, chair of the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Track at Singularity University and a distinguished visiting scholar at Stanford University Media X Program. What I loved about Neil is that he gave a broad perspective on why AI is going to make an impact on healthcare much sooner than we realize.

I live tweeted many of the concepts he shared. Here are a number of his thoughts on healthcare AI:

I loved these perspective on healthcare AI. It was the perfect balance of hope for what AI can and will do for healthcare and the acknowledgment that we’re not there yet. However, he makes a compelling case for why it could really take off as we continue on the exponential curve of AI innovation.
