quote: If only medicine were an exact science, you wouldn't see alot of the health issues you still see today. But the fact that it is exceedingly complicated is exactly what makes the task better suited for a machine. Eventually machines will be more reliable in providing a diagnosis than humans purely based on their ability to make better calculations When biosensing methods are vastly improved (probably a decade from now) then the machines will have access to a wealth of patient data that would be almost impossible to ascertain from medical records.
La ignorancia es atrevida. Dude you really don't understand how stupid you sound.
But how you think is how those idiots in a DC basement think, you know the idiots that want to make Americans experience herd medicine. If you knew anything about medicine, you would know it is more of an art/instinct than a science.
Hubby had a patient that was having syncope (loss of consciousness). He is in his 20s. Studies were performed and he didn't fit the criteria for a defibrillator (herd medicine). A good doctor with experience, and feel felt that he was probably going to have a sudden death episode, but textbooks didn't think so. Against hospital policy he put a defibrillator in. He had to defend his decision to a medical board. 10 months later his patient had a sudden death episode and didn't die because of his device. He went on to win the frisbee world championships (oldest in the team, and team captain) for the US. We have a signed picture of the team in our office. Do you think docs are going to put their asses on the line for peanuts? Do you think computers give a chit! Do you think computers can develop a "feel" for what happens with real life patients?
Patients rarely act textbook. They sometimes get better because they believe in their docs/ treatment (placebo). How do you suggest to replicate this with available data on a computer?
Do you think medicine/technology will give you good medicine? No, it will give you herd medicine and that will be tragic. Open wide and say moo.
