Can Artificial Intelligence Revolutionize Medicine?

The genius of artificial intelligence (AI) is its capacity to swiftly mine repositories of data, such as the vast amounts of information stored in electronic health records and medical literature, recognize patterns, and respond with recommended actions. AI is already being used to diagnose unfamiliar symptoms, predict drug responses, and perform robotic surgery, and seers predict a limitless future for machine learning. But computational processes may never be able to incorporate context and inference into their algorithms and that’s essential to medicine. How far can AI extend the mind of a doctor? What is the impact on the healing touch?
