Perhaps the next natural (even if more distant) step is to think about how artificial intelligence and avatars can provide even more cost-effective, convenient, and immediate care to patients. Surely, there is a subset of relatively straightforward medical questions and conditions that can be answered by intelligent agents, especially when augmented by improved sensor data and analytics. Arguably perhaps the more data that flows in from patients, the more computers will be advantaged in interpreting such data.
Even if intelligent medical agents are not yet ready for prime time, what do you think of their future role? Can intelligent avatars essentially practice medicine? Will the advantages they have in cost-effectiveness, scale, and accessibility outweigh their limitations in controlled situations? How do you see the future beyond human-to-human telehealth?
