Paul Chang, M.D., professor of radiology, vice chair of radiology informatics and medical director for enterprise imaging, University of Chicago, explains some of the issues with artificial intelligence (AI) and how hospitals can better prepare for its eventual implementation across the field of medicine. A key takeaway is that hospitals need an infrastructure and roadway for AI and deep-learning algorithms to operate. Chang said most health systems will not invest directly in AI, but will invest in analytics, which Chang said uses much of the same infrastructure required by AI.
Chang spoke on this topic at an AIMed breakfast briefing seminar in Chicago April 9, 2019. Listen to a webcast of this hour and 15 minute talk.
