Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Primary Care
eGPLearning Podblast: Artificial Intelligence - Shownotes
This is a themed episode where we talk about Artificial Intelligence (AI) in primary care - the applications, risks and benefits to patients and clinicians.
eGPlearning Podblast is a health tech talk by two Nottingham based GPs covering recent topics, useful clinical apps, and interviews with primary care health tech innovators.
Disclaimer - We are not experts, but we are interested GPs, we are merely discussing our impressions, ideas and concerns and optimism in the hope that you may find this interesting.

What is AI? (5.12)
Artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare: is the use of algorithms and software to approximate human cognition in the analysis of complex medical data. Specifically, AI is the ability for computer algorithms to approximate conclusions without direct human input.
When thinking about A lot of people think of Artificial General Intelligence, an artificial agent that thinks like a human, but this is thought to be a long way off.
HAL 9000 from 2001 A Space Odysey is a (rather sinister) example of Artificial General Intelligence.
AI is a combination of key technologies…
Key terms, definitions and technologies:
The 4th industrial revolution
Deep learning, algorithms, fast processing, storage capacity and ability to collect large amounts of data are the foundations of the 4th industrial revolution - AI.
Logic and rules based AI…
Pattern based AI...
Machine Learning (7.53) - see our episode with Jon Brassey
Deep Learning (9.20)
Natural Language Processing
Similar to natural language processing in unlocking image and video data to train algorithms. Potential to initially impact, Radiology, dermatology, ENT(15.07), retinal imaging.
Implications for general practice…
Will it change things quickly or slowly?...
Some potential benefits of AI in General Practice:
Special mention for...
