Artificial Intelligence is a discipline that allows the design and programming of systems capable of mimicking characteristics that are considered typically human such as, for example, the ability to recognize and make decisions.
The impact of technologies related to Artificial Intelligence for the management of Big Data, aimed at optimizing healthcare, is destined to revolutionize the world of healthcare.
According to a recent report by a well-known IT services company, the Artificial Intelligence market for Healthcare is expected to reach 6.6 billion dollars by 2021 with a growth rate of 40%. Also according to this study, the clinical and biomedical applications of Artificial Intelligence will strengthen the medical imaging diagnostic processes and support patient care activities by increasing revenues in the healthcare sector by 30-40% and, at the same time, reducing treatment costs up to 50%.
Machine learning allows the human expert to pinpoint otherwise hidden or at least unknown information. In particular, being able to automatically process data collected on a large number of patients relating to a specific pathology, to transform them into information, represents the added value necessary to have increasingly accurate statistics on its evolution and on the measures to be taken to combat it , putting man at the center of attention, not just the disease to be treated.
