Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have been a part of our vocabulary since the 1950’s, so why is it suddenly getting so much attention? This talk will examine the combination of factors that have accelerated AI’s contribution to healthcare decision making, look at real world examples of applied AI delivering measurable improvements, and discuss some of the disciplines and processes an organization needs to master to make productive use of these new technologies.
