Current uses of AI in the Pathologist's Digital Daily Workflow, and What the Future Holds


There is so much being discussed right now in all areas of life about the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI), particularly since Chatbot GPT was deployed,  the topic of AI has been in most areas of human interactions, including health care of course. 

This proposal aims to describe and elaborate on the role of AI in Pathology, what specifics tools are available now, what is being actually used clinically and what is in the pipeline. We will start with a summary of how AI algortihms are created and classified from 2 difrerent angles and from there we will discuss the ones used in Imaging and those used in other areas of Pathology. 

A panoramic view will be given about current tools and usage across the different subspecialties here in North America and around the world.  From there,  we are planning to introduce the audience to the concept of Image Management Enterprise and how this new paradigm of storing and organizing images across differenta subspecialites may be a steping stone for a new era of image diagnosis. Speciall enphasis witll be given to the relationship between radiology and pathology in this ecosystem

We will include other possible AI driven architecture models that are offering to integrate medicne from several angles and create local, regional and international databases,

Finally, we will add the Chatbot GPT Universal Language model and the real possibilities this may bring into our world of diagnostic medicine. 



  1. Understand and the current usages of artificial intelligence in daily sign out.
  2. Explain the different types of AI tools available, how do they differ from each other and how they are used.
  3. Analyze the possibilities of the expansion of AI as it pertains to Pathology and the possible roles that Pathology may play in the future of medicine
