Augmented intelligence: An interview with Dr. Justin Ko

Dr. Justin Ko speaks with MDedge reporter Ted Bosworth about the use of augmented intelligence in dermatology. Dr. Ko is the coauthor of the American Academy of Dermatology’s position statement on augmented intelligence, which was released in May 2019.

Dr. Ko addressed this topic during the plenary session at the AAD’s summer meeting in New York City, in a presentation titled “Augmented intelligence: Fusing technology with human expertise to enhance dermatologic care.”

“Augmented intelligence is a term that’s specifically used so that we can move people away from conceptions about artificial intelligence,” Dr. Ko explained in the interview. “When we use that term, the first thing that pops into people’s minds are robots, terminators … other things that seem intimidating … that misconception is one that I really want to draw attention towards.”

This week, we also bring you the following news:

1: Hidradenitis suppurativa linked to higher NAFLD risk
