Last week, I went to Seoul, South Korea to attend an international medical seminar. In this conference, there was a program discussing the important role of artificial intelligence technology in the development of medicine.
I am amazed at the rapid development of artificial intelligence technology. Several leaders in the field of artificial intelligence technology shared their latest research results.
Or can replace the doctor to do routine surgery
Artificial intelligence technology can not only effectively analyze test results and make accurate diagnosis, but now this technology has also played a pivotal role in treating patients. Participating in this national seminar was an eye-opening opportunity for me, allowing me to get in touch with the latest developments in artificial intelligence technology around the world.
Several scientific studies have shown that artificial intelligence can analyze some test data more accurately than doctors and make more accurate diagnoses. For example, artificial intelligence technology can accurately analyze CT or MRI videos, and from some clues that are difficult for human eyes to recognize Find the crux of the problem.
Doctors sometimes become exhausted and make wrong judgments after taking care of all kinds of affairs. However, artificial intelligence technology can make accurate analysis and judgment repeatedly day after day, regardless of day and night.
Scientists believe that one day artificial intelligence technology can replace radiologists to analyze these regular and systematic inspection reports. Of course, some test results that vary greatly still need to be analyzed and interpreted by radiology experts.
However, what surprised me even more is that those wizards who are ahead of the times have developed the application of artificial intelligence to perform complex operations on patients. At the meeting, these scientists demonstrated how a robot controlled by artificial intelligence can perform angiograms and vasodilation procedures and place coronary stents that our cardiologists do. In time, these artificial intelligence robots may really replace doctors in routine operations.
Last year, I also read an article about Japanese scientists developing artificial intelligence-operated electronic pets to accompany lonely elderly people and relieve boredom for long-term hospitalized patients. Maybe we will think that these electronic pets are rigid and emotionless, while human beings are alive and emotional, so the two should not spark, but the results of scientific research are surprising.
Many old people and patients can put their love on these electronic pets to relieve their loneliness and melancholy. It seems that artificial intelligence can not only replace human work, but also take away the role of cats and dogs to accompany human beings.
Keep a piece of pure land that is not intelligentized
We human beings claim to have emotional contact, so we confidently believe that artificial intelligence is irreplaceable in this respect, but advanced artificial intelligence has slowly captured this field! A study shows that artificial intelligence can write comforting texts. These emotional texts can soothe the anxiety of critically ill patients and the grief of losing loved ones. The touching text created by artificial intelligence is more effective than the doctor’s words in alleviating the negative emotions of these patients. We humans have been defeated by artificial intelligence again!
It seems that we have to prepare our hearts for the arrival of artificial intelligence doctors! Seeing that artificial intelligence has penetrated into all areas of human life and even replaced the relationship and trust between people, I feel mixed feelings, but this is an unstoppable trend. I only hope that we human beings can still keep a space where we can love each other deep in our hearts, a pure land that is not artificialized by artificial intelligence.
