Artificial intelligence in health care: New product acts as ‘copilot for doctors’
The healthcare industry in the US is beginning to adopt artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline routine tasks and reduce burnout among health professionals. Regard, a California-based firm, has launched an AI product that can automate tasks to diagnose and treat patients in 30 hospitals around the country. Its software means computers can diagnose patients, offer advice on treatment and alert professionals to anything that may have been missed. Researchers predict that such technology could save hundreds of billions of dollars in healthcare costs. However, public attitudes towards AI use in health care are cautious, with a survey by Pew Research showing that 60% of Americans would be “uncomfortable” with doctors relying on AI for treatment.
