    [AI defeats elite doctors in diagnosis competition
    ... An artificial intelligence system recorded a 2-0 victory against elite physicians in two rounds of a competition in Beijing to diagnose brain tumors and predict the expansion of brain hematomas, or bruises.
    BioMind, developed by researchers from the AI Research Centre for Neurological Disorders and Capital Medical University, made correct diagnoses in 87% of 225 cases in about 15 minutes.
    A team of 15 doctors from top hospitals across China achieved 66% accuracy in 30 minutes. The AI system also made correct predictions in 83% of brain hematoma expansion cases, outperforming the physicians, who had only 63% accuracy.
    ... It will make proposals to a doctor and help the doctor diagnose," he said. "But it will be the doctor who ultimately decides, as there are a number of factors that a machine cannot take into consideration, such as a patient's state of health and family situation." ...]

I feel sorry for all the people who are in their 30's or 20's. Their life is going to be mostly miserable eventually.

        There is no doubt that intelligent machines will more and more take jobs from humans . Just today I saw another example in Bloomberg : "... The only big bank that managed to cut costs also happens to be behind one of the industry’s boldest plans to replace humans with automation. Nordea Bank AB, whose Chief Executive Officer .. says his industry might only have half its current human workforce a decade from now, is cutting 6,000 of those jobs ... with automation and robots taking over from people in everything from asset management to answering calls from retail clients ..." (from .

        In relation to banks , it started long ago with the ATM - Automated Teller Machine , then the internet banking .
