NHS needs to pursue AI, says think-tank


I see the problem as computer solutions being designed to fulfill what can be done, or what the latest gadget is, rather than to meet a need of clinicians. We have self driving cars, mapping software and autopilots on airplanes - there is no reason that some parts of decision making, perhaps for known long term conditions, can't be automated. This needs to be led by clinicians though.
