Intelligent machines are at the heart of new healthcare technologies for saving lives and averting suffering. Computers can diagnose illness with incredible power and speed, ranging from IBM’s Jeopardy!-winning Watson to wearable or implantable devices.

Artificial intelligence is enhancing the power of doctors, nurses, and patients. Rather than replacing the doctor, these technologies can free up physicians’ time, allowing them to focus on the high-level cognitive tasks that computers can’t replicate.

Dr. Robert Graboyes, Senior Research Fellow and health care scholar at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, will give this talk. Author of Fortress and Frontier in American Health Care, his work asks, “How can we make health care as innovative in the next 25 years as information technology was in the past 25?”

This event is part of the Osher Series on Aging Well, made possible by a generous grant from the Walter W. and Maria Teresa Regirer Foundation.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Note: Current Osher members should register online using the Osher registration portal.
