Limits of Artificial Intelligence

  • Radiology
    • We now have a shortage of radiologists in the US despite it being declared that it will be replaced by computers in the next decade.
    • Only 11% use it, 20% want to use it, rest don’t want to, but why? They cite poor performance.
    • Andrew Gelman cites that they made this new algorithm for assays but it wasn’t used 17 years later, and he says that this is because of the lack of a clean alternative. You need to actually operationalize and deploy it.
