Abstract: The latest AI advances have the potential to massively improve our health and well-being. However, most of the work is yet to be done. In this talk, we will explore the most important opportunities for AI in healthcare as well as specific challenges facing AI in healthcare. We will start by examining AI ability to diagnose major life-threatening conditions much earlier then other methods, sometimes years earlier. We will talk about AI ability to recommend dramatically more effective and less harmful treatment plans based on AI interpretation of patient's medical history, treatment effectiveness and real time patient monitoring. Finally, we will talk about AI role in making our healthcare system effective and affordable for everyone. For each area, we will discuss both the latest progress made as well as the challenges yet to be solved.
