What should the A in AI stand for in medicine?

Artificial? No. Artificial Intelligence has been 5 years for decades and will be 5 years away when I die.

OTOH, as the author of the study points out, Assisted Intelligence where the machine assists the intelligent doctors and nurses has great promise. He labels it as it should be labeled - machine learning. Unfortunately that label doesn't bring VC funding or research grants.

(P.S. IT has been going downhill since we stopped calling it DP.)
