Personalized Medicine, Artificial Intelligence Systems and the Medical Laboratory Sciences
Peter J. Bridge, PhD, FCCMG, FACMG | December 13, 2018 |
There has been a genetics revolution in the last decade. This revolution is now infiltrating other medical laboratory sciences in a much more dominant manner. Individual genomic profiles and personalized medicine will soon be the norm. Artificial Intelligence systems will play an increasing role in the generation and periodic reanalysis of these profiles. For a time, the ability to identify risks will not be matched by equal opportunities to fully put into place effective risk reduction strategies because, for our current cohort of older individuals, many of these opportunities have already been lost. Hence the great urgency of our preparations!
