Abstract

After his defeat by Big Blue in 1997 Gary Kasparov was asked what the future of chess would look like.  He thought the best outcome would be pairing human and computers together.  A core principal of the Center for Intelligent Health Care is to optimize artificial intelligence and human cognition.  This presentation will step though research on human learning and cognition, especially focusing on how experts think. He will discuss how this work might have implications for artificial intelligence in healthcare over the next decade.
