AI may be key in preventing contaminated drugs, according to the Director of Xavier Health Marla Phillips. “It can recognize connections from data that might seem irrelevant to a human and identify that it is producing a signal that could lead to a flawed product. Humans would otherwise let it go undetected.”
Doctors are often deluged by signals from charts, test results, and other metrics to keep track of. It can be difficult to integrate and monitor all of these data for multiple patients while making real-time treatment decisions, especially when data is documented inconsistently across hospitals.In a new pair of papers, researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) explore ways for computers to help doctors make better medical decisions.
