VA looking to artificial intelligence to help spot medical issues in images

The Veterans Affairs Department is testing whether artificial intelligence can flag health problems from medical images, help veterans find services online, and enable clinicians to reach out to patients about their mental health. VA looks to take this to the next level under its new AI strategy. For details, Federal News Network’s Jory Heckman spoke with the director of the VA’s National Artificial Intelligence Institute, Gil Alterovitz.
