Transforming Healthcare through Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

Over the past few decades, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has played a vigorous role in transforming our world. Especially today, AI presents itself in many different forms and influences our daily life. It is incontestable, that the potential of AI and robotics is nearly endless, opening up new doors for a vast array of industries. Inevitably, Healthcare is one of the latter. Technology allows for more accurate, systematic, and impactful interventions in patient care. Artificial Intelligence is expected to drive the changes and improvements towards healthcare excellence, by truly augmenting human activity.

Applications and Benefits of AI and Robotics in Healthcare

AI has become extremely sophisticated at doing what humans have been traditionally doing. What’s more, it’s incomparably time-efficient and cost-effective. It lays the ground for proactive health management and encourages an appropriate lifestyle for well-being. Although the applications of AI and Robotics in healthcare are vast, we list just a few of them below:

What are the challenges with AI applications in Healthcare?

The main challenge with AI application in healthcare is reliable and relevant data. AI solutions are just as good as the data they base decisions on. Typically, in healthcare, the data is fragmented across various systems and in multiple formats. Such a fragmentation can increase the risk of errors and decreases the comprehensiveness of the datasets. In addition, AI systems might become biased on the data they are being trained on.

Furthermore, there are ongoing privacy concerns related to AI incorporation in the healthcare industry. Some patients have worries regarding their privacy being violated. This assumption becomes even more sizeable due to AI’s ability to predict the private information of the patient without the algorithm ever having received it.
