The Two Main Problems of Artificial Intelligence In Healthcare

Feb 27, 2019 11:30:00 AM / by Lucy Martin posted in Public Sector, Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Private Sector, Healthcare

 

There are few (if any) industries that can be transformed by artificial intelligence to the degree that healthcare can. As initiatives around the world seek to digitize healthcare data, there are huge opportunities for game-changing tools and platforms. However, with potentially a yottabyte (1024 gigabytes) of healthcare data in the United States alone, we are no closer to this utopian, data-driven world of healthcare.

Data is one of the most talked about subjects at the moment alongside Big Data, AI and Robots, but what exactly is it?
