Today we’re joined by Suchi Saria, the founder and CEO of Bayesian Health, the John C. Malone associate professor of computer science, statistics, and health policy, and the director of the machine learning and healthcare lab at Johns Hopkins University. Suchi shares a bit about her journey to working in the intersection of machine learning and healthcare, and how her research has spanned across both medical policy and discovery. We discuss why it has taken so long for machine learning to become accepted and adopted by the healthcare infrastructure and where exactly we stand in the adoption process, where there have been “pockets” of tangible success. Finally, we explore the state of healthcare data, and of course, we talk about Suchi’s recently announced startup Bayesian Health and their goals in the healthcare space, and an accompanying study that looks at real-time ML inference in an EMR setting.

Artificial intelligence is the name given to technologies that mimic the human mind. These technologies do this by performing cognitive functions like the brain, as they learn and analyze the data fed to them. Machine learning, algorithms, and deep learning are all such technologies. Health Sector and Technology The health sector is ripe for technological innovations, especially from advancements in AI and machine learning. Robotics and machines are not the innovations sought out these days, but technologies that mimic the human mind are more resourceful and helpful in certain areas. These areas include diagnosis, radiology, pharmaceutical manufacturing, treatment and monitoring, and personalized medicine. The computers are fed data into them to make a data bank, after which they can assess the current case in hand. A Correct Diagnosis – First Step in Saving Lives Diagnosis issues have plagued the medical world for a long period of time. The tremendous load on healthcare professionals and dubious history records makes it extremely tough for them to diagnose diseases quickly. With its raw processing power and large swathes of data, AI can predict diseases at a faster rate. According to a study, AI detected breast cancer faster than healthcare specialists. Here are some AI applications at the forefront of AI diagnosis miracle: PathAI – Helps in Cancer diagnoses. Buoy Health – An accurate symptom checker of various diseases (uses a chatbot) Freenome – Early detection of cancer made possible through screenings Drug Development with AI Perhaps the greatest leap in the healthcare sector [More]

Abstract: Artificial intelligence has begun to impact healthcare in areas including electronic health records, medical images, and genomics. But one aspect of healthcare that has been largely left behind thus far is the physical environments in which healthcare delivery takes place: hospitals, clinics, and assisted living facilities, among others. In this talk I will discuss our work on endowing healthcare spaces with ambient intelligence, using computer vision-based human activity understanding in the healthcare environment to assist clinicians with complex care. I will first present pilot implementations of AI-assisted healthcare spaces where we have equipped the environment with visual sensors. I will then discuss our work on human activity understanding, a core problem in computer vision. I will present deep learning methods for dense and detailed recognition of activities, and efficient action detection, important requirements for ambient intelligence, and I will discuss these in the context of several clinical applications. Finally, I will present work and future directions for integrating this new source of healthcare data into the broader clinical data ecosystem.

We need tools that can help us – both clinicians and patients – make better healthcare decisions. Yet in order to do so, those tools need to “think like we do” … and the key to natural intelligence is not simply X better than Y, but rather sequences of decisions over time. To best assist us, our clinical computing tools should approximate the same process. Such an approach ties to future developments across the broader healthcare space: cognitive computing, smart homes, cyborg clinicians, and robotics. Casey Bennett is the Chief Scientific Officer for Faros Healthcare. He received his PhD from the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University. His work focuses on artificial intelligence in healthcare, including the areas of robotics, machine learning, clinical decision support, and personalized medicine. He was the lead designer for Centerstone’s award-winning organization-wide analytics platform (2010 TDWI Best Practices Award) and the national Knowledge Network Data Warehouse, the largest ongoing clinical mental health data repository in the country.

The mission of Skychain is to save 10 million patients from premature death due to medical errors within 10 years. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death. For example, when doctors analyze X-ray lung images, they fail to diagnose early lung cancer in 69 percent of cases! There are many hundreds of examples like that in healthcare. But artificial intelligence can dramatically reduce the number of such errors! Skychain intends to provide an infrastructure to radically increase the efficiency of healthcare AI development and training. It will make diagnostic AI systems far more accessible and affordable for the consumer by using blockchain technologies to facilitate safe transactions between the key parties. Skychain is unique. The project is based on the revolutionary approach of using smart contracts to bring together many healthcare big data providers whose data is vital for AI training, thousands of independent AI developers, computational resource providers (crypto miners), and millions of consumers. Skychain is the next leader in the healthcare AI market!
