Artificial Intelligence could completely reshape how medical care is given to seniors in many different ways.  For instance, Michael Recht, chair of radiology at NYU Langone, is spearheading a partnership between NYU Langone and Facebook’s AI’s research group with a goal of reducing the time it takes to conduct an MRI by a factor of 10.  The project, dubbed FastMRI, could enable MRIs to replace x-rays, avoiding radiation exposure.  Imagine going into CHOMP for a quickie MRI.  On the prescription drug side, Michael Frank, director of R&D strategy within Pfizer’s Worldwide R&D group is hoping to leverage machine learning to accelerate drug discovery.  On average, it takes 14 years and $1.6 billion to develop a new drug!
