A.I. in Patient Care: Robotic Caregiver or Family?

In today's digital world, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data are making waves in the healthcare industry. Big Data is a driving force and a result of the Internet of Things (IoT); which connects humans to their devices and surrounding environments. Indeed, with the rapid development of big data analytics, many successful AI applications are now available in healthcare. The recent advancements in this field have fueled discussion on whether AI robots will replace healthcare professionals in the future. While this idea might have seemed absurd a few years ago, this notion is fast becoming a reality… or not?

Nowadays, AI can help make better clinical decisions, and in some areas of healthcare, it can potentially replace human judgement. In fact, the Steven Spielberg movie "A.I." portrayed a robotic boy (David) being adopted as a test case child by an employee of the robot maker company. Being programmed with emotions, such as love, David gradually becomes accepted as part of the family. Is big data and AI a boon or a bane? Will AI become family in the near future? This talk aims to provide a global insight to the various innovations that have resulted from big data and AI, so as to stimulate your thoughts on how we can champion the use of such technologies in 21st century healthcare.
