About This Talk

Greg Corrado, Co-founder of The Google Brain team and Principal Scientist on Google's AI Healthcare team, has spent the last decade at the forefront of the AI revolution. Greg's vision for how AI will help to shape the future of health and medicine is grounded in his experience as a neuroscientist—before he started working on computer neural networks, he was focused on neural networks in the human brain.

From distilling data insights to improving the decision making process, Greg sees a multitude of ways that AI and machine learning can help magnify the healing powers of doctors. In fact, he believes that doctors who embrace AI will "see their healing powers expand more than they have in a hundred years." Tune in to Greg's 2017 TEDMED Talk to learn more about the enormous role that AI and machine learning will play in the future of health and medicine, and why doctors and other healthcare professionals must play a central role in that revolution.
