During the decades when the sophistication of the algorithms and neural network-based AI of today were evolving, a similar, and synergistic movement, was occurring in oncology. Advanced technologies were fueling an unprecedented “big data tsunami” with associated advances in analytics. The big data revolution in cancer has informed, and been informed by, artificial intelligence that is now driving new, non-traditional approaches to diagnosing, treating, and preventing cancer. Although AI may well prove to be transformative for Cancer, should we worry about the concept that AI could someday advance to a point where machine intelligence surpasses human intelligence (AI evolves to become self-aware) – or is this threat the stuff of science fiction?
Join us for this Insights Forum as we explore the state of numerous efforts to apply AI to cancer, what to expect in terms of potential advances (or not) during the next decade and beyond, and what we should fear, if anything?
