AI in Medicine Is Overhyped
Despite the vast potential of artificial intelligence technology that many experts agree will have myriad impacts on our lives, some see reason to be cautious about hyping AI and its benefits. Two of those voices are those of Visar Berisha, a Fulton Schools associate professor of electrical, computer and energy engineering, and Julie Liss, associate dean and professor in ASU’s College of Health Solutions. They point out that AI has not been accurate in health care applications, specifically in predicting disease. They look at the causes of such inaccuracy and what can be done to prevent it. Berisha and Liss advise easing up on the hype and taking more a rigorous approach to developing AI’s abilities.
