In part 1 and 2 of the AI Fights Back Series, we examined vulnerabilities that allow nefarious hackers to penetrate healthcare institutions, battleground protocols, and a new weapon (AI) to be used in the fight against hackers. The final installment in this series covers the cybersecurity adoption journey from the vantage point of IT professionals who are expected to deploy AI while also preserving the integrity of the Enterprise.
In a world where hackers relentlessly prey on healthcare providers, and cryptocurrency becomes synonymous with ransom, AI rises to the challenge to help ransomware victims fight back. In part 1 of the AI fights back series: Halt, Quo Vadis? (Who Goes There?) we examined vulnerabilities that allow nefarious hackers to penetrate healthcare institutions and the treasure troves of sensitive and broad clinical and financial patient data that they store. In part 2, we will explore battleground protocols and a new weapon (AI) to be used in the fight against hackers.

Ceci n’est pas une pipe (This is not a pipe): OCR (Optical Character Recognition) progress and pitfalls for healthcare
Recognizing objects and patterns in medical images or documents can be fraught with misinterpretation and errors. Distinguishing the meaning of words that are represented by pixels can be even more challenging because words must be first identified, then processed, then understood with the right context and knowledge of that word. While OCR (Optical Character Recognition) has come a long way since Ray Kurzweil’s OCR computer program in the 1970s, it will take continuous improvement in Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine learning (ML) to advance this technology further.
In the 1984 Joe Dante film Gremlins, a cute and gentle creature can turn into a nightmarish monster if you don’t precisely follow the care instructions. Training a healthcare AI algorithm, although not quite as dramatic, can give its creators cold sweats nonetheless.
While Speech Recognition was a definite and necessary building block that made Natural Language Processing (NLP) ultimately possible, equating it with NLP is like comparing a 1921 Model T Ford with a 2021 model, self-driving Tesla.
What does Frankenstein have to do with health IT consolidation? Are IT professionals more like Indiana Jones or McGyver? Is there an end in sight to the consolidation trend?
Is AI a threat to physicians? Is it possible for AI algorithms to make physicians obsolete? Will the robots take over? In the second part of this series, Florent Saint-Clair kiboshes some of the many fears associated with AI. And highlights the many advancements the merging of AI and healthcare has benefitted the industry.
Florent Saint-Clair challenges the healthcare community to let go of lingering fear or doubts and accept that in 2021 AI is here to stay.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare imaging is at an inflection point. Despite the growing body of evidence that shows the promise of AI in healthcare, radiology is adopting AI with some hesitation. AI algorithms made available strictly as a cloud solution exclude many healthcare organizations that have not adopted the cloud.
AI applications are entering radiology at rapid and increasing rates. AI distinguishes patterns and irregularities in large collections of data, which makes radiology an ideal application. More than other medical disciplines, radiology has a long history of storing studies digitally, with plenty of images to train AI algorithms.
Artificial Intelligence presents a promising future for radiology. In this article, we identify the major challenges of AI adoption in enterprise imaging. Overcoming these obstacles will allow radiology to realize the full potential and reap the benefits of AI.
