Although many people are skeptical of artificial intelligence, most believe it will improve intervention prediction analysis (91 percent) and clinical decision support (91 percent).
According to Neowin, Intel recently conducted a survey with Convergys Analytics that involved 200 U.S. healthcare policy makers.
The survey focused on attitudes toward artificial intelligence (AI) and perceived barriers to its adoption.
While most professionals believe that artificial intelligence will be beneficial, one in three said they would not trust it to prevent it from making a fatal mistake.
In terms of adoption rate, 19% of respondents said that artificial intelligence takes two years to become popular in the healthcare field, 35% said it takes 3-5 years, 32% think it takes 5 to 10 years, and only 11% think This will take more than ten years. Of the participants, 37% already use artificial intelligence, but most people have limited capabilities.
As part of the investigation, Intel hopes to find out why professionals are skeptical about artificial intelligence; the results of the survey show that 54% believe that artificial intelligence will lead to fatal errors, and 53% said that artificial intelligence is not performing well or is not working properly. 49% said that artificial intelligence would be exaggerated and not in line with expectations.
While many people are skeptical about artificial intelligence, most believe that artificial intelligence will improve intervention predictive analysis (91%) and clinical decision support (91%).
In addition, 81% said they would increase efficiency and reduce medical costs, while 75% thought clinicians would spend more time with patients because routine work would become automated.
In order for artificial intelligence to be accepted and integrated into healthcare, Intel identified four tasks that need to be implemented.
First, the “black box” perception needs to be addressed – people need to understand what artificial intelligence is doing.
Second, artificial intelligence needs to be able to perform simple tasks before performing complex tasks.
Third, the benefits of artificial intelligence need to be clearly emphasized so that people can accept it more easily.
Last but not least, the healthcare industry needs to provide feedback to regulators.
