Machine Intelligence for Healthcare – Book Preview

BY Gloria Consola

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a rapidly developing area that promises to play a major role in transforming many areas of modern life. In its infancy, AI devised methods for automating simple cognitive tasks which had been performed by humans, but which were tedious or time consuming– like ATM machines and routing algorithms for call centers. The methodology for these simpler tasks could be referred to as narrow AI. AI is now poised to broaden, to solve more complex tasks, some that would take an inordinate amount of time or other humans are unable to perform or that would take an inordinate amount of time. We refer to the methods for this broadening as Machine Intelligence.
