Artificial Intelligence


The term Artificial Intelligence is widely used and difficult to define. It is, in summary, the attempt to imitate human decisions and learning by computers. The use of AI is advancing, but it is not without controversy. Poor data or non-transparent algorithms are common points of criticism.


In medicine, AI is being researched in many areas to support or even take away human decisions. This has been developed beyond prototypes in many parts of life where, for example, there is a high level of data, and the first medical devices based on AI have also been certified. Nevertheless, AI in medicine is not without controversy. In addition to the uncertain data situation, the lack of transparency of most AI solutions is also a frequent criticism of its application in medicine.

There are certainly areas where AI has advantages. But we believe in the synergy of the physician and an AI. This combination brings the greatest possible benefit to the patient, as it combines the technological advantage of computers with the experience and foresight of the physician.

AI in medicine is often a locked system. This means that an AI is used to train software, but these algorithms are locked after clinical validation. The AI therefore does not continue to learn and can only be adapted via a renewed clinical validation.
