Using AI to assess surgical performance

A research team at Inselspital, Bern University Hospital and Caresyntax has succeeded in proving that artificial intelligence can reliably assess surgeons’ skills. A method involving a three-stage procedure has been presented that correctly designates good and mediocre performance with a high accuracy rate. This paves the way for further steps towards AI-supported expert systems. More […]
