Note: At present the software and algorithms cannot help doctors much unless confirmed by doctors themself, such as in some surgeries where doctors nod that they can help. Otherwise will just confuse the doctors and patients. This is a future mission and the way mankind should work on. Please do not rely on AI as of now for treatments unless approved.
Once the current AI reads all medical books. Yes, this is what it is called, AI based programs reading medical books. Then AI will be able to recite what it has learned, with symptoms and with the right dose as is studied in medical courses of various kinds.
But that is not all for medicine.
This process can be called medical recitation.
Doctors can’t be compared to medical recitation.
The doctor can keep a robot by his side, who suggests things all the way through discussions of cases with the patient and then recite in and hear the doctor’s final conclusions. This way it will record what he said, what the doctor suggested and then this is a kind of feedback to the robot and is called reinforcement learning. This robot will be associated with the doctor. It would grow with the doctor and will be an expert as like the doctor.
The robots can scan the reports and get in inputs it needs by scanning and informing the doctor of what abnormal things it has found in the report. The doctor can have his robotic assistant to learn the way it wants.
The Robot one day will get its software algorithm replicated to junior doctors robots and this will go on.
The robot once trained can go out on its own to places to assist other junior doctors.
It can be used in places such as the current disaster place, earthquake disaster, where people are short of everything, and work with junior doctors to help the burden.
This can be used in cases of places where doctors are not available and the individual taking the first aid is known to understand the basics. Here, the robots can work with remote support.
A sample query can be “dog bite immediate medications required”.
These are kinds of helps it can do as of now.
At present the software and algorithms cannot help doctors much unless confirmed by doctors themself, they will just confuse the doctors and patients. This is a future mission and the way mankind should work on. Please do not rely on AI as of now for treatments unless approved.
Other helps can be “Please tell about various kinds of cancer therapies, time and treatments details.” These are things it can do on its own.
However, one would always need a doctor, to study the x-ray sheets to understanding the empathy. Till robots learn to scan a pdf document and read an x-ray. All these are processes done in by various fields of AI, but now is the time to join it all in one robot.
This wont effect the doctors work, as the population is growing and life expectancy is growing, we need more doctors than number of doctors graduating each year.
AI would help the overloaded doctors as many things people can understand before going to doctors.
It can tell which medicines to take, and what to do if the current one does not suit you.
Already some surgeries are performed by AI but in a supervised way, this is exactly, what can happen with doctors with AI machine robots by his side.
But it still needs to be supervised by a medical expert, as a reinforcement learning task.
This may reduce the expense of healthcare.
Even doctors would be relieved from all time looking for the compositions of medicines around.
It’s a long way to go, but we can start now, and train a specific AI LLM along with doctors. The model doctors are using can be well trained by them and hence can be essential for future growth.
