AI in Healthcare: Miracle or Menace?

In the eye-opening talk “AI in Healthcare: Miracle or Menace?” celebrated medical futurist Dr. Rubin Pillay dives into the fascinating yet controversial world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare. As the landscape of modern healthcare becomes increasingly technologized, the question isn’t whether AI will have a role to play, but rather, how will it transform the sector and what implications will this have on the providers, patients, and society as a whole.


As a miracle, AI has the potential to revolutionize healthcare, making predictive medicine possible, streamlining administrative tasks, enabling precision diagnostics, and even assisting in complex surgeries. It opens up a realm of possibilities that promise more efficient care, lower costs, and improved patient outcomes.


But as a potential menace, AI brings its share of concerns — ethical, legal, and societal. What are the implications for privacy and security? How do we address the ‘black box’ problem in AI, where algorithms make decisions without humans fully understanding how? What happens to the role of healthcare professionals as AI takes up more tasks traditionally done by humans?


In this thought-provoking presentation, Dr. Pillay deftly navigates the complexities of AI in healthcare, presenting a balanced perspective that weighs the opportunities against the challenges.
