Among many surprising applications, AI can be used for pain management and medical care. Neuroscientist Sara E. Berger of IBM joins Chris Grundemann and Stephen Foskett to discuss applications of machine learning in medical care. Pain management is a deeply personal field, but there are so many different data points that it can be difficult to see patterns that lead to positive outcomes. Machine learning can assist in sorting and selecting treatments, bringing in different sensors and data types to help patients. The more we see pain in a multi-disciplinary lens, and the more understanding we bring, the better the outcome for patients.
- Chris: How small can ML get? Will we have ML-powered household appliances? Toys? Disposable devices?
- Stephen: Is it possible to create a truly unbiased AI?
- Sriram Chandrasekaran, Professor at the University of Michigan: What do you think is the biggest AI technology that you can think of that will transform medicine in the future?
