Global Health Systems Are Learning To Embrace AI As A Force For Good
AI Is Increasingly Seen As A Realistic Solution To The Demand Overload On Clinicians
The term artificial intelligence was coined at the Dartmouth Summer Research Project in 1956, but it is only in very recent years that it has been consistently at the top of the agenda in discussions on the future direction of health care. As a tool to improve both the quality and speed of care, AI is now increasingly seen as a realistic solution to the demand overload on clinicians. At the same time, techno-fears are abating. This confluence will transform health care radically in the next two decades.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly becoming part of our day-to-day routines, and healthcare is one area in which AI stands to make the biggest impact. But where is the technology headed? Leading figures from the medtech industry gathered at the Medical Design & Manufacturing East (MD&M East) meeting held in New York City to discuss.
The attention accorded to dementia, MCI and degenerative brain conditions has been slow to reach the levels given to the more visibly-quantifiable conditions, such as cardiovascular disease and oncology. But earlier detection of cognitive impairment is a priority, despite therapies not yet being available to halt or reverse the conditions. Playing its part to push back the boundaries is Cognetivity Neurosciences, a London-based company with an innovative tool that uses AI to test subjects for the early signs of dementia.
