While there is still much to overcome to achieve AI-dependent healthcare, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could prove to be a self-running growth engine for the health sector in the not-so-distant future. A recent report from Accenture focusing on the potential of 10 AI applications determined the "near-term value" of AI in healthcare and how the impact of rapid technology stacks up against the upfront costs of implementation. Results from the report show that an estimated $150 billion could be saved through the application of AI in the U.S. healthcare economy by 2026. Below are the top three AI applications with the most significant value potential in healthcare, according to the report's findings.

There's a lot of excitement right now about how artificial intelligence (AI) is going to change health care. And many AI technologies are cropping up to help people streamline administrative and clinical health care processes. According to venture capital firm Rock Health, 121 health AI and machine learning companies raised $2.7 billion in 206 deals between 2011 and 2017. The field of health AI is seemingly wide -- covering wellness to diagnostics to operational technologies -- but it is also narrow in that health AI applications typically perform just a single task. We investigated the value of 10 promising AI applications and found that they could create up to $150 billion in annual savings for U.S. health care by 2026.
Even if IA is not the Holy Graal of diagnostic in healthcare, it can help medical staff in many way. This article list 10 promising domains where IA will generate revenues in next 5 years. It's interesting to see that administrative tasks take 51% of nurse's time and (16%) of physician time. AI should drastically reduce it. AI should also be used as a 24/24 and 7/7 health assistant, responding to patients questions about their health and treatments.
Scientists have developed an AI that uses WiFi to detect people behind walls and then model what the people are doing. It's believed this new tech will help the care for people with diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's and older people living in assisted living facilities. It will sense how people are walking and whether they are starting to tremble and this data can be used to track the treatment of disease. However, I believe this tech is going to be used in hunter/killer drones and then modified for install into the T800, but that's just me. Check out the demo video.
