It's official: AI will cause major change
September 19, 2019 -- The findings of a Dutch survey confirm that medical professionals expect massive changes to practice driven by artificial intelligence (AI) in the near future. This attitude bodes well for future AI implementation, but much more needs to be done to bridge the gap between promising research and clinical integration, the authors say. Read More
