    Great informative video. But challenges for AI in medical diagnosis can be-
    1. Data privacy of a patient. (CRIME,etc.)
    2. Less human & more machines (feeling, emotions,ethics)
    3. High level connectivity (Internet ,etc)
    4. Affordability (low and average Economy nations).

    Anything else u can suggest .

    Some investor said surgeons and doctors won’t be needed In 2035… but I think it’s hype

    The hospital scene is one of the most rigid entities and changing it will be a very slow process due to the laws and oversight agencies as well as privacy concerns that bog down any kind of innovation.

    The greedy pharmaceuticals will either assimilate or do whatever to suppress this…people rarely care about patients and diseases …ts all about earnings and profits to shareholders

    I think you shouldn’t put all your faith into Machines and people can stop being lazy, by 2037 it would be all Machines and we would basically be applying for engineering..Humans can do lots of stuff. We should NOT replace Machines with ourselves and humanity!
