How Artificial Intelligence Can Help in Improving Healthcare


Despite the significant advances made in computer science in the last decades, which are daily improving medical services and research, patient care has always been about human-to-human interaction and empathy. However, through artificial intelligence, medical professionals can obtain more accurate patient information and make better decisions. The application of sophisticated mathematical algorithms is going far beyond the collection of information. Artificial intelligence now has the ability to learn, distinguish patterns and find substantive inconsistencies usually invisible to the human eye. IBM Watson, the supercomputer, is one of the best examples of the practical application of AI in healthcare.
