'The nature of the error matters:' Why considering artificial intelligence's failures is important, too
from AI in Healthcare
A multitude of recent studies and success stories suggest artificial intelligence is on its way to topping doctors in accurately diagnosing diseases from asthma to breast cancer — seemingly a step in the right direction. But does the hype surrounding AI’s victories eclipse its shortcomings? A Wired reporter argued that might be the case in a recent editorial focused on the fallout of a New York Times article suggesting AI could be used as a physician aid for diagnosing some conditions. The article drew from a Nature paper that found a certain AI software package was more accurate than physicians in diagnosing asthma and gastrointestinal disease, but the Times article failed to mention where the technology fell short.
