The role of artificial intelligence in healthcare has been a huge talking point in recent months and there’s no sign of the adoption of this technology slowing down, well, ever really. AI in healthcare has huge and wide-reaching potential with everything from mobile coaching solutions to drug discovery falling under the umbrella of what can be achieved with machine learning.
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, SRM University AP, organised an insightful workshop on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Healthcare in collaboration with IEEESRM-AP student branch yesterday. Addressing a gathering, Dr Murali Krishna Voonna, Managing Director, Mahatma Gandhi Cancer Hospital & Research Institute, Visakhapatnam confirmed that Artificial Intelligence has a huge potential to become a transformational force in healthcare. It allows humans to gain unprecedented insights into diagnosis, care process, treatment variability and patient outcomes.
Dr Voonna informed that there is a huge scope for development in the segments such as brain-computer interface, next generation radiology tools, creation of precise analytics for pathology images, expanding access to treat underserved regions and clinical decision support to name a few. NITI Aayog is working with Google to develop Artificial Intelligence ecosystems in India both in training and research. They have started a National Research Strategy for Artificial Intelligence recently.
