Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to software-based systems that use data inputs to make decisions on their own. Human interaction is essential for guiding a systems learning process and the expected outcomes, however AI software is capable of learning and evolving to improve independently.
In the healthcare industry, it has the potential to radically change how systems work, interact with and care for patients. Implementation of AI is the next step following big data and analytics system usage to unlock and access extensive amounts of data. AI allows users to access real-time data with little effort and it is this efficiency that’s expected to revolutionise the healthcare industry.
