The Col·legi de Metges de TGN held the conference on the values ​​of clinical practice

The third conference of the cycle d’enguany will run under the direction of Prof. Dr. Ramón Gomis de Barbarà (OUC) and will deal with Artificial Intelligence (AI) in medicine, a highly topical topic that will be addressed with Dr. Gomis the IA has vingut per to stay and in medicine “la gaudirem, ens hi barallarem i ens farem moltes ask”.

Of the seves experiences with AI, we will highlight the activities with members of the “Barcelona Supercomputing Center (https://www.bsc.es/)” and with the metges that use it in the seve research and clinical tasks. Next, he will talk about the seves first experiences on cybernetics, term and scientific whiteness of which I will have news thanks to a professor of philosophy during the batxillerat and that they will talk about Nobert Wiener (1894-1964).

Wiener will be a brilliant mathematician professor first at Harvard and later at MIT who will define cybernetics (from the Greek helmsman) as the interdisciplinary science that studies communication and the regulation of systems in machines and essers. L’any 1950 he is described the 1st regulation mechanism in the cardio-vascular system. Some time later, in 1956, they created computational models capable of emulating the neural networks.

These two advances are different in the data they use, in the first they are volumes, in the second they are electronic signals. Given the interest in cybernetics, it seems that IBM is going to support the AI ​​brand, developing an effective marketing of the material. Com apunt de sortida per a parar de la IA cal ask-se que es intel·ligència. An approximation could be that the intelligent home learns, understands and makes decisions.

The AI ​​would be the intelligence expressed by a “machine” made up of a processor and some programs that can be analogous to the human brain, brain and mind. In AI, according to the task to be completed, it is connected to three levels: one simple month, one second month, it complexes the “Machine Learning” (machine to play escacs) and one month, it raises the “Deep Learning” (as a trainer of a computer per fer feines semblants als humans).

What fan els metges? Escort the malalt that is concerned, even angoixat, is a fan of questions, recollects facts and makes decisions. I the question that the AI ​​ho pot fer millor than the metge? AI has contributed to a considerable increase in health care, which is greatly increased. For example, in the field of surgery (robotics), in the diagnosis of images, in the reading of biopsies, analyzes that consider various parameters and allow triaging the most adequate treatment, the oximetry that mitjançant IA regulates the aparell mateix l ‘contribution of oxygen to the malalt sense that tinguin to intervene at every hour personal sanitari. The administration of hospitals is more efficient thanks to AI.

In an altre order of things, the examination of the fonds d’ull is an altre example of medical control that can be carried out with both affordable means (mobile camera). Also in the area of ​​personalized medicine, particularly in cancer, AI helps or can help, for example, to discriminate between those malalts that respond and those that do not respond to the treatment.

But a question that is difficult to answer is the one that refers to the ownership of all those medical data that is produced with the help of AI. An important issue for health and healthcare is the medical scientific publications (1,800,000/year altogether) a wealth of data and ideas that are difficult to capture, unless IA helps.

And lastly, an example of AI outside the hospital medical environment: the shell-BOX Alexa, an invention of great utility and benefit especially for people of advanced age and living alone (geriatrics). Professor Gomis will finalize this brilliant conference with a clarifying prognosis of Ramon Llull (1232-1315) that he will express in the book Ars Magna Generalis et Ultima (ca. 1305) and that he gave “one day we will reason artificially” both that we see that idees d’avui have very deep roots in the passat.

The proper said May 5th will be the 4th conference which will be taught by Dr. Jordi Varela i Pedragosa, a renowned specialist in family medicine, with a diploma in epidemiology and hospital management, who for 18 years has been manager of the Hospital de Puigcerdà, Hospital de la Mar and Hospital de Sant Pau , also with ESADE teaching collaborator, editor of the blog “Advances in Clinical Management”, director of the online course “Clinical Management: Bases, Advances and Reptes” and also of the publication “Advances in Clinical Management”.

The title of the conference is: Values ​​of Clinical Practice, and in which he will talk about the naixement d’aquest nou concepte. As usual, the conference will take place on May 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Col·legi de Metges de Tarragona, Av. Imperí Romà, 11 bis and is open to members of the Academy and to the general public.
