Doctors and patients: why big data must leave space for small talk
Prof Nick Steel (Norwich Medical School)
Lecture theatre, Julian Study Centre, UEA
Until now, healthcare has revolved around a sick person talking with a doctor. But why would we want to waste time with a human when artificial intelligence is better at reading X-rays and making diagnoses, and social media algorithms can predict pregnancy, divorce and death?
Join Prof Nick Steel (Norwich Medical School) to learn why we need good conversations with health professionals now more than ever, especially if we want to avoid the dangers of overdiagnosis and overtreatment for multiple conditions.
Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. These lectures are free and open to all, and there's no need to book;
simply turn up on the night,
or watch live via YouTube, at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqRzc4Y4pbu4f7ZVwq4ODww/live .
Each lecture is followed by a free drinks reception, with a chance to meet the speaker and ask them questions about their research.
