How artificial intelligence can completely revolutionize Canadian health care

By Nand Kishor |Email | Mar 20, 2018 | 16869 Views

We all know that Canada has risen to become a world leader in Artificial Intelligence all thanks majorly due to Geoffrey Hinton, a Google Engineering Fellow, cognitive psychologist cum computer scientist who is widely considered as the godfather of deep learning. By harnessing the potential of neural nets, Dr. Hinton has unlocked learning capability of machines. He has also become the darling of people trying to revolutionize the healthcare and medicine industry.


It is clear that the medical community despite its aversion to change will need to use AI to improve healthcare and this has already begun. Machine learning, today can help identify patterns of symptoms and relevant signs in patients to improve accuracy of diagnosis. In the domain of medical imaging, algorithms are helping computers to improve radiologic studies. There is much more.


Also, technology can help doctors suffering from tedious paperwork which is a plague of this profession. It can enable them to spend more time with patients. Take for instance, an intelligent voice recognition software that can automatically make a note for an encounter with the patient and store it in the electronic medical record. This can help doctors reduce their time spent on the screen and interact more with the individuals. For AI to have a significant positive impact on patients, leaders and healthcare institutions need to participate in the conversation taking place and champion the use of technology in their field.


They can begin by encouraging collaboration between the engineering and medical faculties at universities. Residency training programs and medical schools should give exposure to AI in their curriculum. This could be in the form of electives, dual degree fellowship programs that combine these areas of expertise.


Similarly, governments could play a role by creating the right ecosystem needed for growth. They have made recent investments in creating AI infrastructures which should be viewed as a positive step. This should also be supplemented with federal and provincial policies.


Ultimately, almost every industry will have to evolve with the rapid growth in technology, and medicine is no different. By providing the right ecosystem, opportunities for growth and leveraging the technology, Canada can truly create a difference in its healthcare with the help of Artificial Intelligence.
