"Smarter Medicine: How AI will Make You Healthier" is a book that discusses how artificial intelligence is changing the medical field. AI will revolutionize the practice of medicine. It can make disease diagnosis, prediction, and treatment more effective by enabling personalized medicine. This means treatments can be tailored specifically for an individual's needs based on their unique biology and history. Ultimately, this could lead to a healthier population.
The application of artificial intelligence to the field of medicine has already begun to show remarkable results and is predicted to only become more widespread in the coming years. An area where AI is particularly effective is in diagnostics. A study published earlier this year showed that a deep learning algorithm could diagnose skin cancer with an accuracy rate of 95%. This level of accuracy would not have been possible using human doctors alone. In addition, AI can help identify patterns in data that humans would not be able to see on their own. We can use AI to analyze medical images such as X-rays and MRIs to identify abnormalities that may be difficult for humans to detect. AI can also help doctors keep track of patients' health records and recommend treatments based on history. AI also plays an important role in patient care. Chatbots are now available that can help patients track their symptoms and get advice from doctors without having to go into a clinic or hospital setting. Additionally, its ability to assist with patient care means that those who may not usually have access to preventive or curative health services will now be able to do so.
