Sunandini Chopra spends her days working for IBM Watson Health (genomics and oncology). Her free time, however, belongs to AI for the Rest of Us, “a platform that facilitates discussion, problem identification and problem solving to create a positive impact on public health by leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence.” Platform? It’s a community. A discussion group. A gaggle of brainy AI brainstormers. We know because we hosted one of their events, at which Toby Bottorf, VP of Service & Experience Design, gave a sterling talk on AI and human augmentation in healthcare. Chopra visited The Resonance Test to report to Bottorf on chatbots, the power of Alexa (“Linked with your phone, with your television, with the speaker in your house, it can take you through the whole route of a digital visual experience, a texting experience, and an audio experience,”) the predictive similarities between meteorology and healthcare, the direction healthcare is heading (“There’re two futures: one that’s the future for cutting-edge technology and one the future for all the other people in the world to get access to basic care,”) and the adorable nature of RD-D2. Beep Boop.
