Artificial Intelligence: An Innovative Technology in a Vital Industry
MetadataShow full item record
One of the leading causes of death in America after heart disease and cancer is medical errors. Although not yet officially recognized by the Center for Disease control (CDC), medical errors account for a startling number of deaths, and this is primarily down to preventable human errors in the healthcare industry. Eliminating these errors could save thousands of lives, improving the healthcare industry all around, and one of the most promising methods is artificial intelligence technology. First, I will look at the progression of artificial intelligence technology and examine some modern applications of the technology in other industries like business and automotives. Then, I will research these errors and determine the some of the primary causes of these mistakes in the industry. I will take some of these applications of AI technology and examine how they could be used to both alleviate human error and improve the effectiveness of the industry. Finally, I will look some of the current social barriers to implementing AI technology.
