London hospitals to replace physicians, nurses with AI for certain tasks – beckershospitalreview

University College London Hospitals entered into a three-year partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, also in London, to bring artificial intelligence capabilities to the U.K. National Health Service, The Guardian reports.

Under the partnership, in which UCLH officials said they have invested a “substantial” but undisclosed amount of funding, researchers will apply AI algorithms to a range of tasks traditionally performed by physicians and nurses. The collaborators expect these tasks to include using AI to diagnose cancer from CT scans and to detect which patients are likely to miss appointments.
