Will AI replace doctors who read X-rays, or just make them better than ever?

Will AI replace doctors who read X-rays, or just make them better than ever? As AI moves into medicine, perhaps no one has more to gain or lose than radiologists, the doctors who review medical scans for signs of cancer and other diseases By MATTHEW PERRONE AP Health Writer May 14, 2024, 9:16 AM ET WASHINGTON -- How good would an algorithm have to be to take over your job? It’s a new question for many workers amid the rise of ChatGPT and other AI programs that can hold conversations, write stories and even generate songs and images within seconds. For doctors who review scans to spot cancer and other diseases, however, AI has loomed for about a decade as more algorithms promise to improve accuracy, speed up work and, in some cases, take over entire parts of the job. Predictions have ranged from doomsday scenarios in which AI fully replaces radiologists, to sunny futures in which it frees them to focus on the most rewarding aspects of their work. That tension reflects how AI is rollin

Quantum Teleportation Nears Perfection In New Experiment

Quantum Teleportation Nears Perfection In New Experiment Nikola Pajtic May 7, 2024 Researchers have recently made a huge breakthrough in quantum teleportation. In a new experiment, they carried through a near-perfect transfer of quantum information by using a specific type of noise to improve the quality of teleportation. This was done by disturbing the entanglement connection between quantum particles before the teleportation protocol. To understand the matter better, in conventional teleportation, noise can disrupt the transfer of information, resulting in low-quality information. Quantum Particles Transferred For those unfamiliar with quantum teleportation, it is a process in which the information of a quantum particle, called a qubit, is transferred from one location to another. Now, what is more interesting is that the particle isn’t physically moved from one place to another. This is a mind-bending feat that was first discovered back in 1997. Ever since then, the scientists

What Is an AI Anyway? | Mustafa Suleyman | TED Apr 22, 2024 #TED #TEDTalks #ai When it comes to artificial intelligence, what are we actually creating? Even those closest to its development are struggling to describe exactly where things are headed, says Microsoft AI CEO Mustafa Suleyman, one of the primary architects of the AI models many of us use today. He offers an honest and compelling new vision for the future of AI, proposing an unignorable metaphor — a new digital species — to focus attention on this extraordinary moment.
