Reality Check: Augmented Intelligence is the Future of Healthcare

What was once science fiction is now reality – technology has the ability to match (and surpass) the power of the human brain. There are numerous advantages to augmented and artificial intelligence (AI), and many industries are already leveraging it. In the realm of healthcare, AI can provide benefits ranging from streamlined patient care and increased physician productivity to a greater understanding of genetic, biologic and behavioral patterns. But, what does AI mean for the next generation of medical devices? What are medical device companies considering when they weigh the possibilities of applying embedded intelligence into their products? In this second session of our four-part DeviceConnect series, you’ll hear from experts in the Puget Sound region who are exploring the potential of AI for medical technology.
