As I was driving home the other night I heard a duet by Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand. The lyrics included “Anything you can do, I can do better; I can do anything better than you.” For some reason this got me thinking about the use of AI (artificial intelligence). Seems like AI is everywhere. It is what tells Amazon to stock in its regional warehouses, tells Google what advertisements to post, and stops the cars backing out of driveways into traffic. Soon AI will be driving our cars as well.

When it comes to diabetes management there also seems to be a future for AI. In the latest part of our series on the use of software for selecting diabetes therapy, we have the first part of a point and counterpoint on the idea that “Anything a clinician can do, AI can do better; AI can do anything better than you.” Please take a look at what both Dr. John Interlandi, MD, and Dr. Bradley Eilerman, MD, have to say.
