How Artificial Intelligence is Improving Patient Care
Published November 10, 2022
Most of us are familiar with artificial intelligence (AI) technology because of Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri, and Amazon’s counterpart, Alexa. However, AI can be used for much more than telling you the weather or pausing your music. Across the United States, medical researchers are advancing their field and bettering patient treatment with the help of AI.
Medical treatment has come a long way since leeching and bloodletting. Every day, researchers and engineers develop new technologies and AI programs that change the way that we practice medicine and improve patients’ lives. What innovations do you see on the horizon?
