Imagine this, in a far-flung future, doctors have been replaced by AI—who never make mistakes. Then suddenly one day all the AIs stop functioning. What will the future world look like now?
There were humans, but no humanity. Though AI has proved to be a blessing in disguise, humanity and humankind seem unaware of the wise.
Doctors are the ultimate driving forces of any society. But have you ever thought, what if AI replaces these magic wands? Leaving the world mechanical, with no trace of humanity.
While there is a need for the advent of technology, but that should not be at the cost of demeaning the essence of humanity.
While on one hand, technology is transversing heights, we should be cautious to preserve the seed of basic humanity within ourselves instilled and not let it wear and be tarnished by subjugating it under the extremities of transmuting entirely to Artificial Intelligence!
According to Britannica, “Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer or a robot controlled by a computer to do tasks that are usually done by humans because they require human intelligence and discernment.”
It has proved to be a blessing in disguise for people for eons. It is for this reason that people consider it irreplaceable in almost all the sects of their lives.
But have you ever wondered what will happen if the doctors of the modern world are replaced by AI in the near future? Will the standard of healthcare offered presently in the world be on par? Will it witness a boost or experience a sudden fall in the status of healthcare?
Why can doctors get replaced by AIs?
The above image shows how a patient is carried on a stretcher but the hospital staff is replaced by robots. While this may initially seem deviant, this is precisely what could be the future of our medical industry, and eventually the future of the World.
The Modern World has found alternatives to almost everything and as astonishing as it may seem, there is an alternative for doctors as well.
Clever of the human mind, isn’t it? But have you ever wondered why did this drastic drift from doctors to robotic AIs occur? What was the need for it?
There is certainly no point bamboozling your mind because the fact is as clear as a crystal. It is with the advent of Globalization and Modernization that humans are replaced by bots, specifically robots, and humanity by industrial gravity.
In a world where Science has taken a toll on the human mind what it has evidently failed to entrap in its spell is the creativity of the human mind.
Why is the change?
Change is evident. It is the law of nature. Neither the doctors nor the AI can escape change.
It is the simple fact of life that any individual in this macrocosm cannot escape.
While there are many reasons for this change but the crucial factors that these changes sustain themselves on are:
- Different Mindset: Different Mindset affects change. A changed mindset is a key to helping other individuals align and integrate with sudden transitions more seamlessly.
- Globalization: Over time, while people traveled places. They developed an insight
Yes, Different Mindset and Globalization totally are the holistic factors that determine the changing conditions of Medical Sciences affected by Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Doctors Vs Artificial Intelligence
There may be a gazillion benefits in deploying Artificial Intelligence (AI) as doctors. But there are certain loopholes too. And, talking about the major one is relatability!
Psychology says relatability is the only aspect that can help boost connectivity. Relatability is directly proportional to connectivity, implying if one cannot relate to someone or any proposed idea; they cannot connect with the person, their feelings, or, in fact, even that mere idea.
The same goes for the health industry too. Doctors are like the messiahs. In many instances, people are driven away by misconceptions about the same. They tend to weigh and value people by the chores they do.
Artificial Intelligence in Daily Life
In our day-to-day life, we perform a lot many tasks that go beyond our humane capacity to carry them out effectively, and in such cases, we deploy Artificial Intelligence (AI).
According to Adobe Experience Cloud Blog, here is a list of 5 such examples of AI usage in our daily lives.
1. Self Driving and Parking Vehicles: Self-driving and parking cars use deep learning, a subset of AI, to recognize the space around a vehicle.
Technology company Nvidia uses AI to give cars “the power to see, think, and learn, so they can navigate a nearly infinite range of possible driving scenarios,” Nvidia explains on its website.
The company’s AI-powered technology is already in use in cars made by Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volvo, and Tesla, and is sure to revolutionize how people drive—and enable vehicles to drive themselves.
2. Digital Assistants: Apple’s Siri, Google Now, Amazon’s Alexa, and Microsoft’s Cortana are digital assistants that help users perform various tasks, from checking their schedules and searching for something on the web, to sending commands to another app.
AI is an important part of how these apps work because they learn from every single user interaction. This allows them to better recognize speech patterns and serve users with results that are tailored to their preferences.
Microsoft says that Cortana is “continually learns about its user” and that it will eventually anticipate user needs.
3. Vehicle Recognition Identification: Did you know that many of the traffic cameras around your city use AI to read license plates?
Companies such as PlateSmart, IntelliVision, and Sighthound, among others, use computer vision—a form of AI that can see and understand images—along with deep learning to turn conventional surveillance into vehicle monitoring.
This is an especially important part of integrated traffic systems and a tremendous help to authorities as well, as surveillance videos can now be used to search for specific plate numbers. That’ll make you think twice about blowing through that red light.
4. Robots: The Roomba 980 model vacuum (the one that cleans your floor on its own) uses AI to scan a living area’s size, look for objects that might be in the way, and remember the best route for cleaning the carpet.
The vacuum bot can also identify how much cleaning it needs to do based on the size of the room, repeating a cleaning cycle three times in smaller rooms or cleaning twice in a medium-sized room.
5. Transportation: Machine learning, another subset of AI, powers some of the magic that happens inside of apps like Uber.
“[AI and machine learning] is critical to supporting Uber’s mission of developing reliable transportation solutions for everyone, everywhere,” the company explains on its Uber Engineering site. “
They use ML to enable an efficient ride-sharing marketplace, identify suspicious or fraudulent accounts, suggest optimal pickup and drop-off points, and even facilitate more delicious UberEATS delivery by recommending restaurants and predicting wait times so your food can get to you when you need it.
Doctors: The Personified Magic Wands!
Despite the intervention of Artificial Intelligence, there are some facts that make doctors still unique and cannot be ignored.
Here is a list of seven facts about the doctors who are deemed to be the personified version of the magic wands.
People have the notion that magic in real life is next to impossible. But they forget this herculean task performed by the doctors is no less than a bewitchery too!
- In the U.S., there are more than 700,000 specialists.
- Some specialists fill in upwards of 60-80 hours out of every week.
- Ancient Greek debilitated consideration in 4,000 B.C didn’t include emergency clinics; however, sanctuaries, all things being equal.
- One logical examination recommended that specialists who played computer games have third fewer mistakes than non-gaming specialists.
- The practice of phlebotomy proceeded through the high Middle Ages.
During the Dark Ages, the act of phlebotomy started to fix plenty of blood or ill will.
It can require as long as 11-years to turn into a specialist in the United States.
In the modern world, where everything depends on technology. The techno-savvy human generation still craves for even greater interference of technology in their lives, which though has a spectrum of advantages.
But, as said, excess of everything is lethal. Likely, if technology use is not regulated and overused it can prove to be treacherous for mankind. We cannot deny the fact that AI has several advantages, however, there are certain functions that can be performed by medical professionals only.
AI has produced several advantages in the different fields, however, it is not appropriate to completely replace doctors with AI. Instead, a healthy balance can be struck between the two.
