Two healthcare heavyweights are combining forces to form a technology center they hope will, over the next 10 years, “fundamentally advance the pace” of discovery in medical science and healthcare innovation.

Last week a literature review showed none of 62 high-quality medical AI models ready for translation from academic research to clinical practice. Now comes a similar but separate study confirming the depth of the dashed hopes.

Of five emerging technologies used by nurses to help control infectious diseases, the Internet of Things is the most promising, researchers have concluded. 

The demand for tailored PHI consent for research is strongest among adults 49 and younger, pressing the need to speed the evolution of policies conducive to AI development.

The FDA has blessed an AI-packing armband that checks for biometric patterns pointing to possible SARS-CoV-2 infection in individuals with no symptoms.

The less radiologists know about AI, the more likely they are to believe it may displace them from their clinical pursuits.

Researchers have demonstrated that deep learning models can help neurologists interpret epileptic episodes during and between seizures from relatively few scalp electroencephalography (EEG) readings.

Virtual reality can help quell perceptions of pain as well as dampening the prickling sensations that patients with nerve damage sometimes experience upon being touched.

Researchers have developed an AI-based system that can direct the administering of iron and other red-blood-cell stimulators nearly as well as experienced physicians.

A new survey of around 300 youngish parents has found almost two-thirds worried they’re spending so much time distracted by electronic devices that their children’s development may be at risk.

Affronts against privacy and equality—real, perceived or ginned up—may fuel lawsuits by patients whose COVID care incorporated AI.

An MIT spinoff based in Boston and Milan in Italy has earned CE certification for software that flags respiratory infection in wearers of the company’s smartwatch devices.
