The whole issue of The New Yorker this week is on health and medicine.   I look forward to reading this articles and the other articles in this issue.   The debate about whether the computer can be expected to replace or assist/support/augment the clinician has been going on for almost 50 years.  If you haven't seen this article<http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM197012032832305>, it is a good one for perspective. The potential for augmentation has evidence, but as we know, not a lot uptake of the systems.  Part of the reason is that the existing systems have not been able to be as specific as a clinician would be, which bodes against replacement.   Randy Miller and others have written about why replacement is a challenge.   In any case, thanks for sharing the article.

Thanks to Steve Martin for alerting us to the fascinating article on using artificial intelligence to augment (or replace?) our diagnostic skills......
