Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Nice description of doctors interacting with a future AI.

Con: There’s no real action to the story. Dr. Bayani’s home life is described in such vague terms we don’t really connect with it.

The AI is not realistic. An actual system would never be 100% accurate. Instead, it might be 90% accurate, at best, and the doctors would continually have to second-guess it. Nor would it continue to improve over time; absent new programming, it would plateau.
