Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Healthcare​

Year 2020 highlighted the importance of investing in efficient and intelligent healthcare systems. This sector, increasingly overloaded with senstive data has a lot of scope for improvement using new technogies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

The versatility of AI and the diverse yet specialist needs of the healthcare sector make for a great partnership to augment human expertise, improve access to quality healthcare and reduce cost to provide better patient outcomes. Over the next decade, AI will give healthcare professionals tools to identify and prevent health conditions before they occur, reducing the level of demand of public healthcare services overall.
