Senator Rounds talks about use of AI in cancer and disease research

WASHINGTON, D.C.(DRGNews)- South Dakota US Senator Mike Rounds and the bipartisan Artificial Intelligence working group hosted a panel discussion last week focused on the use of AI in cancer research.

The panel, comprised of academic and industry experts, discussed how AI is transforming health care.

Rounds, who lost his wife Jean to cancer nearly two years ago, says advances are being made that can make a difference on an individual basis.

He says Artificial Intelligence has the capability to take human response time in treating a disease from years, down to seconds.

And, Rounds says, the next five years will bring incredible advances in the use of AI.

In addition to Rounds, the AI working group is comprised of fellow republican Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) and democrats Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.).
