00:31 — Toni reviews the keynote that occurred during Day 1 of the conference that covered the true value unlock of AI. He explains that it’s “not going to be driven by OpenAI and big tech, but actually by large industries, like healthcare.”
00:53 — For many years, early adopters in healthcare have been using AI in different ways. Now, there’s a broad adoption of the technology, from computer vision in radiology to automated invoicing to interactive lab reports that are chat-enabled through GPT-4.
01:16 — “One of the keynote speakers pointed out how critical it is that healthcare organizations and hospitals start building with AI as well,” Toni recalls. Next, major innovations and companies are “going to be built out of industries like healthcare, education, manufacturing…and really creating their own industry-specific AI applications that aren’t necessarily from big tech.”
01:46 — There’s more to AI than just generative AI, such as predictive and classification models. This will help people understand how the technology works and how it can be applied throughout organizations.
02:00 — Ultimately, it will help “reduce reliance on a few players” which is important within healthcare organizations.
02:10 — Toni compares the advancements of AI to the Internet in the 90s: “Everyone needs a base level understanding of how to use it, how it works, what it is, how it can be applied.”
