1/03/23 – Duality – Data and Trust: Digital Transformation – The Impact of Machine Learning in Healthcare
An informative discussion between Prof. Shafi Goldwasser, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of Duality and Suchi Saria, Founder of Bayesian Health focused on where digital transformation and healthcare meet, and how can it impact, improve, and lead to better outcomes?
Saria asks, can the public place their trust in advanced algorithms?
The answer is yes – but only after the public becomes more aware and educated about how models can read data objectively and help healthcare providers make critical decisions. The public should also be educated about how technology is extensively and rigorously validated to help blend human ingenuity with machine-driven decision making.
Once the digital transformation of healthcare is complete – and if done well – Saria hopes to see a significant reduction in mortality rates as well as in healthcare costs. And it’s within reach within as little as 10 years – driven by the innovative technology providers, with the deep expertise of statistics, machine learning and data privacy to optimize patient care.
