GPs to refer patients without cancer symptoms under PM's new AI strategy


Improving the diagnosis of cancer using AI sounds like a good idea to me. How could you not like that? I look forward to the day when all complex decisions are be performed by AI. The computers will do our work for us, they’ll no doubt write our music, edit our newspapers and maintain our stock markets, sell our houses, fill in our tax returns and wash our cars. We won’t have to think, we’ll only need to eat, procreate and trust the computer folk not to get up to any mischief programming. There’s a weird world coming our way. For certain no one will try and rig the system - I guess we can all confident of that?
