STAY IN THE KNOW TO KEEP ONE STEP AHEAD
The emergence of artificial intelligence in all walks of life, including orthodontics, is raising perfectly legitimate questions about the role and very position of orthodontic specialists in treatment plans.
Extremely sophisticated algorithmic programming, aided by computer but based uniquely on statistical and combinatorial calculations using the data supplied, does make it possible to imitate human behaviour, but does not make it possible for machines to think and establish a relationship even less so!
Up against this artificial intelligence, we have human intelligence, located in the brain, a living system and organ, which is prodigious, strange, marvellous, mysterious and infinitely complex with its constantly evolving dynamic connections; a centre of activities, including: decision-making, the development of motivation, imagination, planning, reason, creativity, social interaction, etc. providing the means to feel, think, act.
