Artificial intelligence just might be the next major technologic breakthrough to affect health care delivery, with seemingly endless possibilities for the improvement of patient care and optimization of the health care system overall. Simply defined, artificial intelligence is a field of computer science focused on enabling computers to complete tasks or generate knowledge that, in the traditional sense, would typically require human intelligence. Within the topic of artificial intelligence, there are the fields of machine learning and deep learning. Machine learning refers to the ability of computer systems to automatically improve their functioning, or “learn,” in accordance with continued exposure to data, as opposed to being explicitly coded to complete to a specific task. Deep learning similarly works to determine relationships between inputs and outputs, but leverages a more complex network of nodes between the inputs and outputs that enable deep learning algorithms to more accurately solve complex problems.
