While the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) carries much promise in the health care industry, it’s “important (to) temper” expectations about its potential performance, Peter O’Blenis, Evidence Partners co-founder, says.
“While available computing power continues to grow rapidly, it’s clear that real people are still needed to make intelligent decisions when screening references and extracting data,” O’Blenis says in a write up.
But that’s not to say AI doesn’t have its perks today.
O’Blenis says systematic review software can allow for multiple layers of work simultaneously in the review process.
“For example, once a reference has been included at the Title and Abstract Screening level, it immediately moves on to Full Text Screening or Data Extraction and becomes available to anyone assigned to that level to work on,” O’Blenis writes.
