Title Computers as Clinicians: An Update

Source Computers in Biology and Medicine, Vol. 22, No. 4, Pages 227-237
Publication Date 1992
Abstract Computers as clinicians entered medical settings relatively recently, but with limited success because they lack general intelligence --- that is, though they can be experts in domain-specific specialties, they cannot yet deal with clinical problems never before encountered. SOAR, a novel AI computer programming architecture, can learn from past encounters with prior problems and can generalize its learning to new ones. It may therefore take computers to a higher level of clinical performance.
