About the presentation: About the Presentation: The computer era has transformed both the way we work and type of work we do, particularly growing the need for highly skilled and trained workers. This has certainly been the case in the field of clinical neurophysiology. Recent decades have seen advances in digital technology leading to marked expansion in both the spectrum and overall use of neurodiagnostic testing. Procedures like long-term video EEG monitoring that are now common were not feasible until technical advances allowed the required data acquisition and storage. Growth in neurophysiologic testing has also meant greater need for qualified neurodiagnostic technologists, with demand generally outpacing the supply. While computer technology has generated new areas of work, it has also eliminated the need for human workers in some fields and rendered others entirely obsolete. Highly complex, creative work, such as that performed by the neurodiagnostic technologist, has traditionally been thought impossible to mechanize. However, advances in artificial intelligence now allow computers to complete tasks as challenging as driving a car in traffic. Are neurodiagnostic technologists then threatened by future technological unemployment? Current examples of computer algorithms used in clinical neurophysiology demonstrate a role in assisting, but not yet replacing, the physician and technologist. The lessons of history suggest the near future will see continued evolution of the field, most likely with an increased need for highly skilled technologists to ensure continued access to safe and high quality neurodiagnostic services.
