Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Healthcare

Artificial intelligence is transforming industries. Health care is no exception. As artificial intelligence plays a larger role in the healthcare environment, medical professionals are tasked with understanding the benefits and potential pitfalls. They also must learn strategies for using the technology ethically, and hopefully, to minimize harm. As AI stands to jolt the industry, there is potential to do both good and harm. From analysis of medical imaging to social media data, AI is supporting earlier and more accurate diagnoses. It also creates incentive for companies to probe deeply into people's private spaces, often without their consent, and to share that information for profit rather than for care.

As Director of the Social Intelligence Lab at the University of Maryland, College Park, Dr. Jennifer Golbeck not only studies the most cutting edge developments in Artificial Intelligence up close, but she and her team create the types of algorithms that are making those types of advancements possible in the first place.

Join Dr. Golbeck as she illustrates the power of artificial intelligence to gain deep insights about people from seemingly irrelevant traces of data.
