In a newly published paper on Artificial intelligence-based computer aided detection (AI-CAD) in the fight against tuberculosis, Global Health Professor Amrita Daftary says the risk of using AI-CAD could reduce the fight against TB to one that is purely technical and technological, while neglecting its social determinants and effects.
