Artificial intelligence is transforming health care across Asia, fuelled by innovative public-private sector R&D and a focus on domestic health-care burdens
SINGAPORE, Oct. 15, 2019 /CNW/ -- A new study by MIT Technology Review Insights in association with Baidu explores emerging use cases for artificial intelligence (AI) in Asia's health-care ecosystems. The report, "AI in health care: Capacity, capability and the future of active health in Asia," was produced by interviewing experts from around the region and visiting medical facilities in China to explore the new tools and platforms that are available to clinicians, patients, and care-givers.
The conclusions of the report are:
"By 2030, the World Health Organization estimates that Asia will require 12 million more health-care professionals," says Claire Beatty, editor of the report. "Without AI technologies for increasing capacity, systems simply will not cope. The combination of government goal-setting and private sector R&D is a really promising development for health-care innovation."
"Potential applications of AI technology in health care continue to increase;" says Haifeng Wang, chief technology officer at Baidu, "From medical imaging analysis to assisted clinical decision-making; from hospital workflow management to health management outside hospitals; and from empowering doctors to empowering pharmaceutical companies. AI developments make high-quality medical resources more accessible, increase resource-sharing, and improve the efficiency of diagnosis and treatments."
