QUOTED. 24 October 2019. Michael Wallace.

Executive Summary

Medtronic launched a new artificial intelligence-enhanced endoscopy system for recognizing pre-cancerous polyps in Europe. The company invited the gastroenterology community to an expert panel discussion during UEG Week in Barcelona, Spain to discuss the future of AI in endoscopy. See what US-based gastroenterologist Michael Wallace said about it here.

"We’re seeing this technology come to help us and [it is] important to recognize that it’s not going to replace [gastroenterologists]. We will be very careful as we develop these tools so that it doesn’t replace what we do as physicians and it will enable us to be better doctors, to spend more time doing a very good examination of a patient and talking with patients – things that AI will never be able to do." – Michael Wallace, gastroenterologist, US
