Good episode? Give it some love!
Artificial intelligence or AI is the new buzz word which is impacting every industry, including health care. The global AI in healthcare market size is expected to grow from USD 4.9 billion in 2020 and reach USD 45.2 billion by 2026; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 44.9% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the market growth are the increasing volume of healthcare data, adaptation of newer technologies, need to reduce healthcare costs, rising imbalance between workforce and patients. It is thus very important to understand, adapt and contribute towards building this technology.

In this interview I had an opportunity to interview Mr. Jayanth Rasamsetti,  co-founder of Sgmoid an AI based startup that is disrupting the healthcare industry. We discussed various topics like basics of AI to the difference between various jargon like Artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning. He also assures AI systems will not replace human clinicians on a large scale, but rather will augment their efforts to care for patients. We discuss how over time, human clinicians may move toward tasks and job designs that draw on uniquely human skills like empathy, persuasion and big-picture integration instead of repetitive time consuming tasks.

He walks us through various examples on how eye care providers can contribute in these developments with there clinical skills and expertise. 

Along with all the technical information we also see the fun side of our AI expert in our "Rapid Fire" segment.
