Over a quarter of Swiss employees are stressed to critical levels. In 2018 Health Promotion Switzerland (Gesundheitsförderung Schweiz / Promotion Santé Suisse) reported that the productivity loss caused by the critical stress levels costs CHF6.5 billion/year (USD 6.6 billion/year), or a full percent of Switzerland's GDP. Absenteeism (5.5%) and Presenteeism (15.6%) among the 16-24-year-old population are at 21.1%. Absenteeism is discussed much more often, even though absenteeism is three times higher.
Healthcare is the logical next step for the AI revolution. We agree with the article that especially with healthcare AI cannot be implemented freely and the so-coined Silicon Valley way. We strongly believe that for AI in healthcare to work and benefit the right stakeholders there is a need for doctors and therapists to be deeply included in the training and development of these algorithms, and later in controlling the systems, some systems might need very little control, and others need more. The amount of control highly depends on multiple facets, from the disease to the progression, and many more even what other alternatives there are to a particular patient. For example, it's better for a patient to get a pre-approved and tested AI to help than no help at all.
