Fully autonomous medical AI is here, but are we treating it with the caution it deserves?

AI has the worst superpower… medical racism.
Medical AI can detect the racial identity of patients from x-rays. This is extremely concerning, and raises urgent questions about how we test medical AI systems.
Docs are ROCs: a simple fix for a “methodologically indefensible” practice in medical AI studies.
The way we currently report human performance systematically underestimates it, making AI look better than it is.
It’s complicated. A deep dive into the Viz/Medicare AI reimbursement model.
CMS will reimburse an AI stroke detection model through Medicare/Medicaid. It is so darn complicated that it deserves a much deeper look.
The medical AI floodgates open, at a cost of $1000 per patient.
AI is finally getting paid, apparently at a rate of $1000 per patient. What?
The FDA has approved AI-based PET/MRI “denoising”. How safe is this technology?
Super-resolution promises to be one of the most impactful medical imaging AI technologies, but only if it is safe.
This week we saw the FDA approve the first MRI super-resolution product, from the same company that received approval for a similar PET product last year. This news seems as good a reason as any to talk about the safety concerns myself and many other people have with these systems.
Improving Medical AI Safety by Addressing Hidden Stratification
Medical AI testing is unsafe, but addressing hidden stratification may be a way to prevent harm, without upending the current regulatory environment.
AI competitions don’t produce useful models
Ai competitions are fun, community building, talent scouting, brand promoting, and attention grabbing. But competitions are not intended to develop useful models.
The best medical AI research (that you probably haven’t heard of)
I discuss a piece of medical AI research that has not received much attention, but actually did a proper clinical trial!
Ten controversial opinions about medical AI
Forget about interpretability, don't share your code or data, and remember, AI is magic.
