Decisions made by medical practitioners rely on large amounts of knowledge,
attention to detail, and problem-solving abilities, and have significant impact on patients’
quality of life. Over the past sixty years, technology that assists humans in utilizing corpuses
of knowledge to make informed and accurate decisions has developed and shown to have
positive impact. The use of technology in the medical industry has also evolved significantly
during that time period. This paper explores the evolution of technology-assisted decision
making in the medical industry and discusses its potential for future impact, its limitations,
and its ethical ramifications. (From Introduction)
