Artificial intelligence could globally revolutionize health care—unless it destroys it

Artificial intelligence could globally revolutionize health care—unless it destroys it

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.

First Ambulatory Assessment Study

We have started our first ambulatory assessment study, this study consists of 10 subjects, five with burnout and five without burnout, data will be collected for a 14-day time period. This first ambulatory assessment was made possible through our partner the psy-bern AG. Subjects are given multiple questionnaires, which are used in todays clinical and ambulatory settings, we also developed our own questionnaires in app together with the psy-bern AG. Subjects also receive hardware such as a Smartphone (with our App installed), a Polar H10 chest belt (sponsored by Polar Switzerland), multiple accelerometer sensors and a bed sensor. In the end we will use this first trial dataset to model and predict stress.
