Artificial intelligence is being developed on all fronts, from transportation to military applications to banking and logistics. As in these and many other industries, AI is helping to gradually improve the efficacy of medicine.

Through the collection and handling of Big Data, AI’s ability to determine prevention techniques, treatment plans, diagnosis and the monitoring of patients is ever-evolving and ever-improving.

As with most scientific fields, health care professionals and medical researchers base their investigations on the analysis of compiled data. As a result, modern medicine has learned more about how we get sick and how to treat various illnesses, for instance.

Now, AI applications are able to analyze a data set faster than a single human brain.

O’Reilly Media is a publication covering all aspects of computing that also hosts annual conferences with the goals of exploring specific fields within computing and making their body of knowledge readily available. The latest of these conferences dealt with artificial intelligence and showcased how AI is revolutionizing medicine in four main fields, forcing doctors and caregivers to take heed.

1. Radiology

Zebra Medical Vision is a company that aims to create the largest medical imaging data platform in the world. Their hope is to enable researchers to quickly develop algorithms and imaging knowledge with advanced processing power and large-scale data sets.

Enlitic, a company based in San Francisco, offers its artificial intelligence technology to analyze medical scans.

Although the software performance is advertised as being more capable than those available to the conventional health network, it will assist radiologists in their diagnosis rather replacing them. Here, AI improves medicine and care without removing the human element.

2. Diagnosis

Lumiata has developed analytical predictive tools to find specific information and make predictions regarding symptoms, diagnosis, procedures and treatments for individual patients or groups.

3. Preventative Medicine

Based on powerful computers and advances in medical imaging, Insilico medicine uses virtual constructions of the human body and turns experiments on digital anatomy into available data. As opposed to the medicine that is tested on living tissues, Insilico gives the opportunity to practice on digital copies of ourselves.

4. Treatment

One characteristic of autism that hinders social interaction is difficulty recognizing facial expressions in people, and, therefore, gaging emotional reactions.

Brain Power uses AI and facial recognition technology to develop games using augmented reality devices like Google Glass. The goal is to aid autistic children in recognizing the significance of facial expressions and other social cues.
