Interesting Mark.  I took the time to listen to the podcast - found it
fascinating. :-)
I wonder whether we give enough credence to the observation that "history
taking" is important and that it can often lead to the correct diagnosis.
Learning to be reactive to "hints" is hard. Maybe the work that Weiner is
doing should get more recognition.

Someone once said that the  way to make the correct diagnosis is to let the
patient tell you (or something like that).  Not sure that AI at its current
level would be better than the physician.

Thanks for sharing.
