Artificial Intelligence in GI and Endoscopy- Impact on Patient Care (On-Demand) | January 2020
Released: February 2020
Viewing Time: 1 hour
What is artificial intelligence (AI) and how will it impact gastroenterology and endoscopy? The first artificial intelligence devices in endoscopy are beginning to become commercially available. However, artificial intelligence is not necessarily new but has evolved since the 1950’s. How will it impact endoscopy practices and how should clinicians interpret the current literature? Dr. John Vargo will share what the literature has indicated as of current date and the trends forward that Fellows and other clinicians should consider.

Original Release: February 2020
Rebroadcast: December 2020
Learning Objectives
1. Identify the timeline of how artificial intelligence has evolved and its impact upon gastroenterology and endoscopy.

2. Determine the efficiency of how artificial intelligence is being used in positive identification of diminutive polyps as compared to false positives.

3. List how artificial intelligence tools could be applied into other areas of gastroenterology and endoscopy clinical practices in the near future.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
