Talk
Machines And Humans – Perfect Together
Much has been said about the coming of AI and obsolesce of humans in healthcare. This hype and fear are nonproductive. The real question for healthcare professionals should be: how do we use AI to better care of patients while containing costs and improving patient satisfaction? Initial efforts have largely focused on helping physicians and broader efforts are beginning to use AI for finance, operations and value.


 Session Abstract – PMWC Silicon Valley


Overcoming data mining and visualization challenges is critical to the success of data science. Converting data to a visual framework such as data clustering allows trend recognition which in turn can help with decision making. This approach to insight generation linked with human experience will be very powerful for all aspects of data sciences.
