In Health Care, AI to Advance Rapidly Along With Its Regulation

This far-ranging video examines the current uses and future prospects for AI through the eyes of two experts from UST: Adnan Masood, PhD, Chief AI Architect, and Anand Nair, Head of Healthcare Payer.

Masood pointed out that there is little point to regulating research and development in AI, because the rules tend to miss the point and impose unnecessary burdens. However, regulating the application of AI is useful, and Masood would like to see more of it. Singapore has led the way with regulation, and the EU is “moving fast.”

He mentioned positively a recent AI risk management framework (RMF) from NIST as a step making AI more fair, safe, and explainable.

Nair suggested that AI can make it easier to manage health care regulations, on which a hospital spends 8 million dollars a year on average. He also said that the benefits go beyond doctors; for instance, care coordinators can be more efficient and AI can help drug development.

Both believe that AI can deliver primary care through telehealth to regions that lack it and to marginalized communities.
