The Impact of Ambient Intelligence on Healthcare – Optum Keynote at The AI Summit

41

NEW YORK – The question for health care organizations today should not be whether to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to automate and improve health care, but how to use AI and other disruptive technologies to create the healthcare of the future.

The coming transformation of healthcare will be built around what is known as ambient intelligence, contextually aware electronic environments, sensitive and responsive to the presence of people, the intersection of AI and ubiquitous presence of intelligent objects. Put simply, this is intelligence gathered from a wide variety of sources in our personal environment, such as sensors, wearables, and smart speakers, devices and appliances. Retrieving information will no longer require a person to consult their phone or laptop. Instead, a network of everyday objects working in harmony in the background will be able to respond to – and even anticipate – an individual’s needs and preferences.

In this AI Summit keynote, Optum Fellow Kerrie Holley explores the concept of ambient intelligence – the overlap of IoT and AI technologies – and their impacts on the provision of healthcare and medical services.
