Common Diseases

One of the fastest-growing uses of AI in medicine today is the analysis of medical imagery. Human analysis of imagery is slow, difficult to scale and error-prone. Replacing or augmenting human analysis with algorithmic analysis could even eventually allow medical imaging devices to diagnose patients in real-time as they are being imaged and direct technicians to collect additional imagery to narrow the diagnosis while the patient is still lying the imaging system.
Driverless cars have adopted a hybrid approach in which real-world training data is augmented with simulator-derived examples that generate coverage of the scenarios unlikely to have sufficient physical instantiations. Yet even all of this data is ultimately coupled with hand-coded rulesets that govern the most important life-and-death situations like stopping at stop signs. That deep learning algorithms are still wrapped within hand-coded rulesets to ensure the reliability of their most important behaviors reminds us that for all its hype and hyperbole, deep learning is still in its infancy and is not mature enough to take over such tasks in their entirety with sufficient robustness when lives are on the line.

The health system also opened a new Brighton Center for Speciality Care in Livingston County in September 2018. In March, Michigan Medicine signed a joint affiliation agreement with Sparrow Health System to provide some of its pediatric services through Sparrow children’s Center in Lansing.
