AI deciphers ancient scroll…but we still can’t make a usable EHR

ChatGPT founder wants $7 trillion to power new AI

Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, recently said he is looking for up to $7 trillion in investments to fund the development of new computer chips that can power the next wave of AI. No conformation on the rumor that insurance companies are hoping the new chips will allow them to use AI to reject all claims in less than a second instead of just half the claims.

FCC bans AI voices on robocalls

The FCC has banned the use of AI-generated voices in robo calls. Voters in New Hampshire apparently received calls from AI mimicking President Bidens voice, prompting the concern. The ban stops any use by physicians of using an AI version of their voice from being on hold for hours with a payer to get approval for a commonly used drug, so they will have to stay on the line in person.

AI causing more layoffs than companies admit

Some company layoffs have been driven by the advent of AI, a development that many companies want to avoid admitting. For example, some pricing experts that used to consult with salespeople have been eliminated because AI can supply the information that salespeople need to create a proposal. Perhaps the entire health care industry can be saved with an AI-pricing robot that flags ridiculous markups and outright price gouging of patients.

Utah lawmakers look to ban deceptive AI
