Pathology and the Future of AI


The year 2023 has seen an explosion in publicly available artificial intelligence models that has everyone – in and outside the lab – wondering what the future holds. As the end of the year draws close, Dr. Matthew Cecchini spoke with his own artificial laboratory assistant – Pathrick – to see the positives, the pitfalls, and the pathological purpose of AI tools. Dr. Cecchini’s conversation with a virtual pathology copilot on the practical applications of artificial intelligence was featured in the November/December issue of the Pathologist.
