Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare – Thematic Research

Pages: 46 Published: May 25, 2018 Report Code: GDHCTR001

For six decades, machine learning was poised to take off because members of the “artificial intelligentsia” had already come up with the theoretical models that could make it work. The problem was for a lack of rich data sets and affordable accelerated computing technology to ignite it. These are now becoming more available.
Now, amid a swirl of hype, machine learning —software that becomes smarter as it trains itself on large amounts of data—is going mainstream, and within five years its deployment will be essential to the survival of companies of all shapes and sizes across all sectors.
Many companies, like Alphabet, have already become “AI-first” companies, with machine learning at their cores. At the same time, many machine learning techniques are getting commoditized by being open-sourced and pre-packaged into developer toolkits that anyone can use.
The applications of AI in healthcare are numerous, with the potential to transform key aspects of the industry such as data management, drug discovery, personalized and precision medicine, clinical trial design, and management, and robotic surgery.
