Future-proofing AI

AI is accelerating, but is healthcare prepared for it?

There remains a lot of hype about artificial intelligence in healthcare – the potential is very much there, but the reality is the industry is a while away from AI algorithms transforming everyday care. One reason for this is that most hospitals are still on a journey of updating their tools and processes for the digital age. Pagers and fax machines remain a common fixture in even the most digitally mature healthcare organizations.

But that's all changing, and it's happening faster than you can say "Hey, Siri."

This special project looks at the areas where AI, machine learning and cognitive computing are already driving major gains, highlighting case studies, thought leadership and best practices that can help healthcare move AI beyond science fiction for good.
