    Mayo Clinic Radio: Artificial intelligence in health care

computer keyboard with word healthWhen you hear the term artificial intelligence (AI) you may think of robots replacing humans. AI is defined as a computer system that can do tasks that humans require intelligence to do. It could be as simple as a computer learning to play chess or as complex as a driverless car. In the world of health care delivery, researchers are looking for ways to use AI to help improve patient care and ease the burden on health care providers.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Tufia Haddad, a Mayo Clinic oncologist and the physician leader for Mayo Clinic’s collaboration with IBM Watson, will discuss AI and cognitive computing in health care. Also on the program, Dr. Tina Hieken, a Mayo Clinic surgeon, will explain a new fast-track breast cancer treatment option using brachytherapy. And Dr. Neena Abraham, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, shares research on anticoagulants and the risk of internal bleeding.
