3 Milestones in Artificial Intelligence Were Just Reached -- and They Could Change Healthcare as We Know It

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a "tsunami" that's coming to healthcare. That's what Naveen Jain, CEO of Viome, a small company focused on applying AI to healthcare, told CNBC on Thursday. The waves have already started picking up force. Three major milestones were reached related to the use of AI in healthcare in the last four weeks. There's a good chance you haven't heard about any of them.


Artificial Intelligence Is Already Common -- and It's About to Take Over

#artificialintelligence

There's a frequently cited PwC report that says that 38% of U.S. jobs are at risk of being overtaken by artificially intelligent automation by 2030. Similarly, a Scientific American article warned earlier this year that 40% of the top 500 companies will vanish within a decade as they fall victim to artificial intelligence (AI). Let's be honest here, those predictions are pretty easy to dismiss right now. The average person can take a look around and ask, "Where is all of this scary AI?" But AI is already starting to take over in very subtle ways, and there's plenty of evidence that as AI becomes a bigger part of what these companies do it'll eventually become a bigger part of how our world functions.

Companies like Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG), International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) are using the predictive power of AI to provide doctors with additional tools to fight disease. Researchers at Alphabet's Google Brain have developed an AI system that can examine images of the retina and detect DR as well as human ophthalmologists, according to a paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. HeartFlow is medical technology company that is using graphics processors from NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) and deep learning to create 3D mapping used to provide early detection of heart disease.

So far this year, a lot of the big-name AI companies are obliterating the market... Shares of Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), Facebook (Nasdaq: FB), NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) and Alphabet (Nasdaq: GOOG) are all up double digits in 2017.

Nvidia's Next Big Thing: The HGX-1 AI Platform

#artificialintelligence

In an article published in December, last year, I said Nvidia's stock could scale new highs if the company's revenue continues to grow at a CAGR of 20% plus in the foreseeable future. Investors need to understand how the advantages of TensorFlow coupled with Nvidia's HGX-1 reference architecture will boost its revenue in the foreseeable future, which Nvidia's stock at today's price around $150 hasn't factored in. While Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) was busy to make its MKL (math kernel library) more versatile via incorporating the Neon deep learning framework of Nervana, the startup which Intel acquired almost a year ago, Nvidia silently made its CUDA parallel computing software platform compatible with TensorFlow. AMD, with its upcoming Radeon Instinct line of GPUs along with its upcoming Zen-based Naples CPUs (bundled with the SenseMI technology), could be Nvidia's real competitor, but for that to happen the OpenCL (open computing language) software library (which is the CUDA equivalent for AMD, and to some extent Intel) needs to support TensorFlow.

AI helped triple NVIDIA's data center revenue in the most recent quarter, with the company's CFO, Colette Kress, saying: "AI has quickly emerged as the single most powerful force in technology. If you have an Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) Echo speaker in your home, have ever used Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google Assistant, or talked to Apple's Siri, then you've interacted with artificial intelligence on some level already. Amazon's most lucrative business, its Amazon Web Services (AWS), now offers machine-learning services (part of the broader AI market) to improve natural-language processing, image analysis, and speech generation across apps and services that use AWS.

It's a big accomplishment for Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG). To match the intuitive skills of human players, programmers taught AlphaGo pattern recognition. The latest version of AlphaGo that beat number-one-ranked Ke Jie is even more impressive than the one that defeated legendary player Lee Sedol last year.

Apple Uses Its Chip Expertise To Move Ahead In AI

#artificialintelligence

This chip may operate along the same lines as Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) that accelerates certain specialized mathematical operations useful in AI. While he avoided revealing any specific Apple initiatives, his comments reveal his concerns that AI software requires enormous computing power. Gurman's article incorrectly states that Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) already has hardware AI acceleration in its Snapdragon 835. Qualcomm's Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine that Gurman refers to is in fact a set of software APIs.
