"Are the media (re-)defining how we interact with each other and with the world?
We know everything there is to know about people we have never even met. Through social media, we follow their every move. We even know their pets. Our media use interferes with healthy sleep, family meals, or even our work. Our children need levels of self-control to manage distractions that threaten their schoolwork. Or do they?"
Nicholson Price, Asst Professor of Law - "Black-Box Medicine"
Big data has been coming to health care for several years, and artificial intelligence is approaching even more rapidly. What happens when these two phenomena meet in the context of clinical care? How should clinicians deal with algorithms (whether embedded in EHRs or found on patients’ smartphones) that can predict outcomes, suggest diagnoses, and even recommend courses of treatment—all without explaining how they reach their conclusions? This talk will describe the burgeoning field of black-box medicine, consider how the FDA can and should regulate this technology, and address liability and implementation concerns for clinicians today and in the near future.
