The history of technological development and its use has clearly shown that new technologies have created more jobs than they replaced. Innovative technologies frequently result in greater demand and, thus, greater productivity, which has been good for job markets. However, artificial intelligence products, especially the ones characterized by “deep learning” computational functions, are generating great concern among futurists who worry that once these technologies become adopted, they will increasingly assume human job functions without improving job prospects for human workers. In effect, they will simply take over. Already, numerous job sectors including banking, delivery services, assembly line tasks, and various sectors in the food industry are expected to be replaced by AI run devices over the next five to twenty years.
This presentation will examine these projections within the healthcare industry. Concerns have been expressed that AI technologies will assume numerous job functions including image dependent disciplines, coding and billing functions, and voice recognition and natural language processing activities. The current level of private investment in these technologies is immense, and it is a virtual certainty that numerous AI driven technologies will be appearing in western hospitals and clinics in the very near future
