Episode 77 – An Introduction to AI in MedTech with Bertalan Meskó, MD, PhD
Let me lead off with three questions:
- Do you know the 3 levels of artificial intelligence?
- Do you know the 4 major methods of machine learning?
- Do you know the 3 medical specialties with the greatest number of active AI technologies?
In this short podcast, you will get the answers to those questions and more.
Bertalan is the Director of the Medical Futurist Institute. He has been a guest of the podcast before in episode 36 where we talked about the future of MedTech. He and his team have advised or presented to top pharmaceutical companies, MedTech companies and government agencies. They have participated in and/or led courses at leading universities such as Harvard, Yale and Stanford. If you haven’t subscribed to their newsletter, pause this episode and go to medicalfuturist.com and subscribe. I subscribe to their newsletter. Also, at the Medical Futurist website you will find a wealth of articles and eBooks on a wide variety of subjects related to the future of healthcare. Links to this website and books we mention are in the show notes.
As regular listeners know, the emphasis of the podcasts and video casts for the first half of the year will be Value-Based Care, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in MedTech. The past two weeks we introduced Value-Based Care with Barbara Strain. Due to the challenge of scheduling many of these subject matter experts, the episode themes will be mixed up a bit. Don’t worry, I will help you keep track of them. I have got more very interesting guests lined up.
I just sent out the January MedTech Leaders community newsletter welcoming the 14 new members who joined over the past couple months. If you want to learn more about the community go to medtechleaders net. There is a free trial and an annual subscription costs only 3 or 4 cups of artisanal coffee depending on the size of the cups.
Now Go Win Your Week!!
