Me too! I'd sure as hell prefer an expert-system. In
9.8 out of 10 of my experiences with doctors, I'd
swear they weren't listening to a damn thing I was
saying, anyway. Like Eliezer said, state-of-the-art
expert-systems have been superior to doctor diagnoses
for many years. Ever wonder why they haven't yet
become the standard? Can I say: a not so subtle
conflict of interest? We should probably expect the
same thing in the next couple of years when automated
systems are also superior at performing all surgeries.

Best Wishes,
