Thanks to the rapid development and remarkable efficiency of Artificial Intelligence, modern healthcare more and more often uses innovations related to this technology. We’ve recently mentioned our #femtech projects from the infertility treatment area and several other use cases, but what about other notable examples of the use of artificial intelligence in medicine?
AI helps doctors to scan blood for harmful bacteria. In Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center healthcare professionals use special, AI-enhanced microscopes and “make them learn” how to identify infections in the blood sample. Their accuracy of predictions reaches 95%!
Modern technology is currently indispensable in drug discovery. As the current format of clinical trial takes a lot of time for research and costs billions of dollars (only 1 in 1000 drugs even begin preclinical testing), AI supports companies to work more efficiently. It enables testing with much higher accuracy and helps to avoid a trial-and-error approach.
Artificial intelligence also works well in activities for the patient himself. AI-based symptom cure checkers like Buoy Health listen to a particular person’s symptoms and health concerns and guides patients to the correct care.
