“I had the worst anxiety attack last year, and that’s when I started using a chatbot. Through a breathing exercise, I learnt on the app, I was able to breathe normally. Previously, I always thought that these panic attacks were just me being overdramatic.” says 26-year-old Geetanjali Mishra, a Mumbai-based buyer for a clothing company who frequently uses an app called Wysa installed on her phone for advice to help calm herself down.

The idea of letting a computer take decisions that have an immediate and direct impact on a patient’s medical health — not too easy to digest. But then, think about it, is it not already happening? Computers are already everywhere in the medical domain, and machine learning (for all practical purposes, that’s what AI is, in the scope of this article) is the next logical step.

While there is great promise in the technology in specific use cases, it will likely take time for machine learning to handle the full complexity of healthcare for each discipline and disease. For example, great progress has been made in breast cancer computer aided detection (CAD), however the learnings from that domain may not necessarily translate easily for another type of cancer.

“How are you doing today?” “What’s going on in your world right now?” “How do you feel?” These might seem like simple questions a caring friend would ask. However, in the present day of mental health care, they can also be the start of a conversation with your virtual therapist. Advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) are bringing psychotherapy to more people who need it.

Serial entrepreneur Atul Jalan has made a big business out of understanding the problems businesses face and offering specific solutions. The Founder of Manthan, which offers artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics as a service, has authored the book Where Will Man Take Us? The Bold Story of the Man Technology is Creating. He strongly believes that common and fundamental knowledge will forever be challenged by AI.

Artificial intelligence may be smarter than doctors — or at least better at detecting skin cancer, according to a new study. 

Researchers pitted man against machine to determine which is better at diagnosing skin cancer. They taught a computer to detect cancer by showing it 100,000 images of moles, and then compared its performance to a group of 58 dermatologists.

In the month of June, the emphasis is on Men’s health. Today wearable technology is used when going running, cycling or visiting the gym. In current times, innovations in healthcare technology are introduced at an unrelenting speed and is also increasingly available. Perhaps in these current times, technology’s unbelievable potential and power is taken for granted.

For years now, I’ve been banging the drum for a change in the way we treat the male mental health epidemic. I’ve spoken about the horrific suicide rate among men – three times higher than women – and the fact that men are only half as likely to seek help before taking their own lives. And I’ve argued that our current approach, which requires men to self-present to a medical practitioner and then open up in a way that men are not comfortable with, simply does not work.

When Greg Corrado, Ph.D., an artificial intelligence researcher, took the stage at the TedMed Conference last year, he was frank.

“Doctors who partner with artificial intelligence as a decision-making aid will see their healing powers expand more than they have in the past 100 years,” he told the audience of medical professionals. Corrado is a principal scientist at Google AI and an expert in machine learning.
