Tuesday, November 29 | 3:10 p.m.-3:20 p.m. | SSJ12-02 | Room S402ABThis scientific session should be a must-attend for fans of the popular U.S. television quiz show "Jeopardy." The artificial intelligence of IBM's Watson DeepQA computer beat the game show's two most successful contestants when it played Jeopardy in February 2011 in a man versus machine showdown.
IBM and Nuance Communications have been working together since October 2010 to develop systems that will automatically extract and convert discrete clinical data from clinician-dictated narratives into information that can be used to bring a more evidence-based approach to patient care.
Dr. Nick van Terheyden, Nuance's chief medical information officer, will show prototype tools for delivering advanced analytics that could offer rapid access to a variety of data with corresponding links to underlying data in radiology. Artificial intelligence has the potential to pull relevant medical data from a vast repository for timely point-of-case utilization.
