From our GPS to our smart TVs, smart locks, video doorbell surveillance systems, and the social media platforms we consistently follow and scroll through, artificial intelligence, or AI, has become an integral part of our daily lives. AI is the science of using technology to automate tasks traditionally performed by humans. It is transforming our homes and has a significant impact on our industry.
Within the health care industry, AI is used in a variety of ways, both simple and complex. Data mining, analytics and machine learning have allowed pharmaceutical companies to develop new treatments and vaccines. Wearable virtual assistants keep patients safe in their homes. New technologies and applications have enabled practitioners to accurately diagnose patients, communicate, coordinate care and implement treatment strategies in nearly real time.
