The AI Revolution in Medicine: Gpt-4 and Beyond (Paperback)
AI is about to transform medicine. Here's what you need to know right now.
''The development of AI is as fundamental as the creation of the personal computer. It will change the way people work, learn, and communicate--and transform healthcare. But it must be managed carefully to ensure its benefits outweigh the risks. I'm encouraged to see this early exploration of the opportunities and responsibilities of AI in medicine.''
Just months ago, millions of people were stunned by ChatGPT's amazing abilities -- and its bizarre hallucinations. But that was 2022. GPT-4 is now here: smarter, more accurate, with deeper technical knowledge. GPT-4 and its competitors and followers are on the verge of transforming medicine. But with lives on the line, you need to understand these technologies -- stat.
What can they do? What can't they do -- yet? What shouldn't they ever do? To decide, experience the cutting edge for yourself. Join three insiders who've had months of early access to GPT-4 as they reveal its momentous potential -- to improve diagnoses, summarize patient visits, streamline processes, accelerate research, and much more. You'll see real GPT-4 dialogues -- unrehearsed and unfiltered, brilliant and blundering alike -- all annotated with invaluable context, candid commentary, real risk insights, and up-to-the-minute takeaways.
