Nvidia Announces AI-Powered “Agents” to Replace Nurses in Hospitals

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

Because we live in a dystopian healthcare hell, AI chip manufacturer Nvidia has announced a partnership with an AI venture called Hippocratic AI to replace nurses with freaky AI “agents.”

These phony nursing robots cost hospitals and other health providers $9 an hour, a fee that barely falls above the US minimum hourly wage, and far below the average hourly wage for registered nurses (RNs.)

In a press release, Hippocratic AI described the disturbingly cheap nurses as part of an effort to mitigate staffing issues. The company also claims that the agents won’t be doing any diagnostic work, and will instead be doing “low-risk,” “patient-facing” tasks that can take place via video call.
