The pedometer in a mobile phone or the heart rate monitor in a watch are already part of everyday life for many people. Theoretically, however, much more is possible: Voice recognition software in cell phones could provide information about symptoms of illness. Algorithms could help evaluate vital data in intensive care units, for example, to prevent artificial respiration. Software could evaluate huge amounts of data and make it available for research. What can artificial intelligence do in the future to achieve improved treatment successes and relieve medical staff in hospitals and research institutions?
Will doctors not be human in the future? How Artificial Intelligence is changing medicine will be discussed by Prof. Hampe, Ulrich Kelber, Gottfried Ludewig and Susanne Ozegowski at the next ZEIT Forum Gesundheit. The event is organized by Die ZEIT in cooperation with Else Kröner-Fresenius-Foundation.
