AI-assisted radiology and pathology

The usage of AI/ML tools/platforms for assisting radiologists is, therefore, primed to expand exponentially.

“Machine learning is the study of computer algorithms that allow computer programs to automatically improve through experience.”

The Gimmick

ML vs AI

“How can we build computer systems that automatically improve with experience, and what are the fundamental laws that govern all learning processes?”

“Artificial intelligence is the science and engineering of making computers behave in ways that, until recently, we thought required human intelligence.”

“is aspirational, a moving target based on those capabilities that humans possess but which machines do not.”

Why do tech companies tend to use AI and ML interchangeably?

“… what we want is a machine that can learn from experience.” ~ Alan Turing
