A.I. Shows Promise as a Physician Assistant - The New York Times

Artificial Intelligence might also make a 'diagnosis' more precise . . . I have often regarded Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis as syndrome rather than disease . . . new findings in medical science may further differentiate the syndrome into, hyporthetically, three diseases; we currently have bulbar, limb and diaphragmatic onset . . . whatif riluzole works only with bulbar but new molecules are discovered one works for limb onset and another works for diaphragmatic onset because Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis might be three very different diseases (although I don't believe they are). Consider the possibility of dementia onset Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis . . . I don't know anyone who has suggested dementia might actually be Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis who's beginning affects have the symptoms of dementia. One significance of this observation is some dementia patients might benefit from riluzole treatment. More practically, however, in my dataset, about 3% of the patients would develop diagnosis brain cancer. Ought brain cancer the correct diagnosis in the first place? A specialize artificial intelligence might be easier where the correctness of a diagnosis is appraised: is the given diagnosis correct; rather than what ought the patient's diagnosis be? PLEASE BE ADVISED, althought the press is giving much attention to artificail intelligence . . . the practical value of artificial intelligence remains relatively primative.
