Why Algorithmic Speed can be More Important than Algorithmic Accuracy

Artificial Intelligence (AI) often outperforms human doctors in terms of decisional speed. For some diseases, the expected benefit of a fast but less accurate decision exceeds the benefit of a slow but more accurate one. In such cases, we argue, it is often justified to rely on a medical AI to maximize decision speed – even if the AI is less accurate than human doctors.
