At a Glance
- Image-based medical specialties – for example, dermatopathology – are uniquely poised to benefit from advances in augmented Intelligence (AuI)
- AuI tools must be carefully designed and validated to minimize disruption or unintended outcomes
- The tools must also be thoughtfully integrated into existing workflows to achieve increased efficiency and ease laboratory burden
- Only through human-centered design around the pathologist can AuI succeed
Augmented Intelligence (AuI) has the potential to transform the clinical practice of physicians – and specialties with significant image-based components, such as radiology, dermatology, ophthalmology, and pathology, are uniquely poised to benefit from advances in deep learning applications. The concept of AuI focuses on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in assisting clinicians. The goal? Not to replace human intelligence, but to enhance it.
