Augmented Intelligence in Medicine
The AMA is committed to helping physicians harness AI in ways that safely and effectively improve patient care.
Why augmented intelligence?
The AMA’s House of Delegates uses the term augmented intelligence (AI) as a conceptualization of artificial intelligence that focuses on AI’s assistive role, emphasizing that its design enhances human intelligence rather than replaces it.
Amplifying the voice of physicians
The AMA partners with tech and health care leaders to bring physicians critical insights on AI's potential applications and ensure that physicians have a voice in shaping AI's role in medicine.
