AI is the ability of a machine to make its own decisions based on data that it collects, and may eventually be used to predict a diagnosis, find new diseases, and select the best treatment. In addition to constantly scanning the medical literature for new findings, AI could also help prevent stereotyping because of social or racial bias, and prevent medical errors that can occur from fatigue, or just because a doctor is in a lousy mood.
