Artificial intelligence (AI), also referred to as intelligent computing (IC), has evolved over many decades. Recent advances across several industries and task types have focused new attention on the field of AI. Relative to human decision making, AI systems can provide advantages in speed, capacity, quality, and consistency.
While most existing examples of AI success can be found outside the health care industry, there are clear opportunities for AI in health care processes. Advances in data interoperability, cloud computing, and advanced analytics have laid a strong foundation for a new round of AI innovation.
