How Deep Learning And AI Will Affect Health Care

I ran into an article with some great quotes from experts about how machine learning and deep learning will affect healthcare in the next few years. Here are a few snippets:

Waqaas Al-Siddiq. Founder and CEO of Biotricity (Redwood City, Calif.):
"Deep learning can impact wearables focused on specific conditions, like remote cardiac monitoring, at an individual level by indicating how to personalize algorithms according to one's particular biometric and patient data...

Roman Franklin and Mitali Maheshwari. IT Analysts at MD Buyline (Dallas):
"Thirty years from now, we could see the majority of patients never leaving their house for treatment. We could see robotic or software programs that provide remote patient monitoring and care..."

Jas Grewal. CEO of CareSkore (Mountain View, Calif.):
"AI will be taking on a huge role in healthcare over the next few decades. This will be driven by two things: shortage of skilled providers and advances in technology. AI is already being deployed to handle more and more of the 'busy' work that health professionals have to process, particularly in population health: discharged patient pain assessments, medication check-ins [and] appointment confirmations/modifications..."

Fans of Gordon R. Dickson will recall his medical mech from Warrior (1965):

"[Kenebuck] whistled, and something about the size of a small dog, but made of smooth, black metal, slipped out from behind a sofa nearby and slid on an aircushion over the carpeting to their feet. Ian looked down. It was a sort of satchel with an orifice in the top from which two metallic tentacles protruded slightly.

'A medical mech', he said.
