Beyond the Buzzwords: Artificial Intelligence in Laryngology
Artificial intelligence (AI) is at the cutting edge of academic research and has garnered media attention recently. In 2011, Watson, IBMs AI computer running software called Deep QA, revolutionized the tech industry and became a highlight of U.S. pop culture when it beat two of Jeopardy's greatest champions. Far beyond gaming, AI has applications in every industry and already is integrated into our daily lives, from email spam filters to Siri, Apples voice-activated personal assistant. AI has also been publicized for its potential to revolutionize health care, with many AI-based tools already playing substantial roles that will likely expand in the future. With AIs growing role in healthcare, it is crucial for laryngologists, other healthcare providers and researchers to familiarize themselves with the principles and scope of AI.
