Ron B (Highly likely) says
Using algorithms a robot can easily diagnose and prescribe appropriate medications for the majority of commonly seen disease in medical offices. We as humans use logic, experience and reasoning to diagnose. I see a savy computer programmer easily programming an AI robot to replace most family medical practitioners with a self service kiosk at Wal Mart.

AI can easily make more accurate diagnosis but I still feel that the personal dimension of the job might make Doctors stick around longer
