Applications in Healthcare
The use of AI in medicine is changing the way doctors and patients communicate about health. Drug development, clinical trial analysis, and the forecasting of epidemic outbreaks are just a few of the healthcare procedures that are being aided by AI.
Disease Identification & Diagnosis
Artificial intelligence has improved to the point that it can reliably diagnose diseases from patient photos. AI applications in the field of healthcare aren’t just limited to diagnosing a disease, they also include its possible treatment. With the patient's genetic information and clinical symptoms together, a very accurate probability may be calculated for the illness.
The bot can interpret human inquiries about scheduling, careers, illnesses, and more. As a result, hospitals may spend less time providing patient assistance and more time focusing on other aspects of patient care. By automating these processes, not only do we get vital insights into our customers' habits, but we also save a lot of time for our staff. Even mundane activities like verifying referrals, conducting patient satisfaction surveys, assisting consumers with scheduling appointments and follow-ups, and making payments may be automated with the aid of bots. Insurance coverage and present symptoms are two examples of things that chatbots may double-check.
The pharmaceutical industry may better understand processes and trends for drug development with a rapid and precise analytics platform. Algorithms trained with large amounts of data may anticipate or categorise new data with more speed and accuracy than any human. Machine learning algorithms might not only assist medication developers spot potentially harmful molecules, but also forecast how a candidate molecule would react to diverse physical and chemical settings, shedding light on how that molecule would function in different human tissues.
High-throughput, data-intensive biomedical research assays and technologies have prompted the development of methods for analysing, integrating, and interpreting the voluminous volumes of data they produce. The Artificial Neural Network calculates the optimal amount of historical data to utilise in making future treatment outcome forecasts. The network allows for a degree of control over how much background information is used to influence the model. A new development in AI that may help bridge the gaps is deep generative models, which can produce realistic examples from training data.
Epidemic Outbreak Prediction
The use of AI in illness prediction is on the rise, whether the goal is to aid medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of a disease or to stop the sickness from spreading to other areas. Using various data mining and deep learning algorithms like SVM, Naive Bayes, RNN-LSTM, etc., it is now possible to create an Epidemic Search model that harnesses the power of social network data analysis to predict the probability score of the spread and to analyse the areas that are likely to be hit by any epidemic.
Clinical Trial Research
About half of the time and money required to bring a new medicine to market is spent on clinical studies, which may take anywhere from ten to fifteen years and cost anywhere from $1.5 to $2.0 billion. Patients that are more likely to have a quantifiable clinical outcome may be selected using AI technologies, and a group that is more likely to react to therapy can be identified. Electronic phenotyping is one approach to homogenising human populations, and technologies like natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML) might make the procedure more efficient. Clinical trial eligibility databases and electronic health records (EHRs) may be automatically analysed by AI to uncover matches between individual patients and recruiting studies, with the goal of recommending suitable matches to physicians and patients.
