We have been talking about benefits of machine-learning investments for quite some time. There’s simply an incredible amount of potential and opportunities that can come from these learning machines – especially where the medical field is concerned. IBM’s Watson might have been one of the first major computers to be used in this way, but the number of dedicated learning machines out there continues to grow by the day.
The human body (and the systems of any living thing, in general) is seriously complex. Doctors can do their best to diagnose issues, but as a mere mortal, there’s just no guarantee that they’ll be able to correctly detect all ailments, especially when diagnosing certain issues in advance, such as heart attacks.
This is where machine-learning and artificial intelligence can help.
