Lessons from the new A. M. Turing Award winners

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) announced the latest A. M. Turing Award recipients at the end of March, to honor their contributions towards the breakthrough of artificial intelligence (AI). The Award is frequently recognized as the “Nobel Prize of Computing”. It was named after Alan M. Turing, the English mathematician who developed influential algorithms and…

Empowering the new generation of patients

The Medical Futurist called them the “e-patients” or “empowered patients” because they are “electronic, equipped, enabled, engaged”. They are probably “an expert of their own medical condition” too. AIMed had discussed this before, technology facilitated the flow of information, and thus, we foresee a gradual shift in the traditional patient-physician relationship. Patients are slowly drifting away…

Who should be included in the AI diversity talk?

It started with a tweet, then it turned into a swirl. The mission of the newly established Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) at Stanford University: “The creators and designers of AI must be broadly representative of humanity” was being questioned. The reason being none of its 121 faculty members is Black.  This is not the first…

Robots are on the move to the better

Previously, AIMed did a comprehensive coverage of robots and their respective roles in healthcare. Although these automatons assist in relieving the workload of healthcare professionals, they are still imperfect in some ways. One of which is dexterity. Often, human and animals are able to carry out certain tasks like grabbing or turning with grace and…
