Of all the fields AI is expected to permeate over the coming decade, perhaps none is more consequential than health care. From early diagnostics to robot-assisted surgery, AI is expected to enhance our health in a wide variety of ways.
But it also has the potential to do great harm. The human body is a swirling mass of biological, chemical, and even electrical processes, with structures and physiologies so diverse that no two are exactly alike. More than any other industry, health care should tread carefully when it comes to implementing AI, making certain that negative outcomes be kept to an absolute minimum.
