How AI Is Enhancing Health Care

Summary of article from Dallas Morning News, by James B. Milliken:

The University of Texas System is embracing the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare, despite concerns about job losses and bias. The inaugural UT System AI Symposium in Health Care will bring together AI experts from eight institutions to discuss the responsible integration of AI into healthcare. AI is proving beneficial in various areas like administrative tasks, cancer detection, and treatment planning. The UT System is also integrating AI into degree programs across its seven medical schools, and is working with Microsoft and other academic centers to set standards for AI deployment in healthcare. State legislators are focusing on AI’s responsible deployment, with the Texas Senate prioritizing AI in its 2024 interim legislative charges.
