AI Assisted Diagnostics: Do You Trust Dr. AI More Than Your Bank?

The majority of the German population supports the use of artificial intelligence in medicine. More than 50 percent of citizens would trust AI-assisted diagnoses as much or more than purely medical diagnoses. The number sounds good - but not overwhelming. Or is it? In fact, this percentage is higher than the trust in credit cards, which have been known and used for years. Only 20 percent of Germans still have a high level of trust in banks and credit card companies. But where does this deep trust in AI come from?

Why do people trust AI assisted diagnoses?

Of course, the trust in AI assisted diagnoses is increasing because the trust in AI in general is. AI tools have become more accepted and widely used in recent months. The barrier to trying them out is decreasing more and more. At the same time, health awareness also increased: The importance of health is encouraging people to try out new technologies to better monitor, manage and optimize their health. For example, AI supported diagnostics offer an easy and quick way to identify medical problems without long waiting times. AI systems can analyze large amounts of data and identify patterns that are difficult for human experts to recognize. This enables them to make more precise and accurate diagnoses. Unlike human doctors, AI algorithms are free of personal prejudices or emotions that could influence their decision-making. This often gives people a sense of objectivity and impartiality. AI systems can provide diagnoses consistently and around the clock, as they are not influenced by factors such as fatigue or time pressure. Advanced algorithms and technologies that underpin AI systems also give consumers the feeling that AI assisted diagnoses are safer and more accurate than conventional methods. 

Despite these advantages, it is important to emphasize that AI assisted diagnoses should not be seen as a substitute for human expertise, but as a complement to it. Close collaboration between AI systems and human professionals can lead to the best outcomes for patients.
