AI is now doing better at predicting mortality than human doctors!

The progressing in the sophistication of AI models has now gotten to the point in which algorithms can make better predictions following the analysis of 6 years of data into patient deaths. This is a big step forward and is a good sign for the incorporation of AI into medicine

That's a huge step forward and very impressive when you think that just a decade ago AI was completely incapable of doing anything similar to this. Thanks for a good referral to that article as well!

Doctors will still be needed to input data into the AIs and validate their results to make sure they are accurate.

I agree and there's still a long transitionary period where AIs will still need human contributions to complete many tasks fully, but I think that what will be the defining factor will be when more software infrastructure is built that will manage most of the supporting requirements.

For example, when there are databases that are created autonomously with oracles and APIs being used by AI's autonomously as well, then the flow of data and the decision making for which data should be processed can be entirely controlled by AI's without the need for human interaction.

One downfall onto this is the fact that those were just a mere predictions based only on the data gathered by the AI. Though the algorithm and the system itself was incredible and fascinating, it only features "accurate risks" in which was stated on the article. Hence, it wasn't the death per se, but the possibility of what could be the medical issues to be a person's reason of death in the future.

Any AI will usually get data from the Big Data upon processing information. Only then, it could recommend or suggest a prescription if its in the field of medicine to a person. An AI skills and intellect for this kind of field should have different sets of trials and examinations to prevent the wrong prescriptions like when learning at a university.
