Paving the Road to AI Excellency – By John Halamka, M.D. & Paul Cerrato, Mayo Clinic Platform (@MayoPlatform) – When biomedical journals first began publishing research on AI-enabled algorithms, many observers were enthusiastic about their potential value in improving patient outcomes and easing clinicians’ burdens. Much of that enthusiasm has taken a backseat as we gradually realized that replacing clinicians’ diagnostic skills—or even augmenting them—was not as simple as we once thought. As stakeholders took a closer look “behind the curtain” to examine the composition of the data sets and the modeling techniques to create the algorithms, they realized that, in many cases, they were looking at smoke and mirrors, not sound, unbiased scientific evidence.

CHAI Unveils Blueprint for Trustworthy AI in Healthcare
