Artificial intelligence (AI) tries to mimic human cognitive functions. It is bringing a paradigm shift to healthcare, powered by increasing availability of healthcare data and rapid progress of realtime analytics. AI can be applied to various types of healthcare data (structured and unstructured). Popular AI techniques include machine learning methods for structured data, such as the classical support vector machine and neural network, and the modern deep learning, as well as natural language processing for unstructured data.There are numerous examples of healthcare benefiting from artificial intelligence and robotics. Some examples include AI beating doctors in the diagnosis of breast cancer and Robotic surgery where doctors can perform surgeries remotely.AI beats doctors in diagnosis competition.Robotic surgeryTo be clear, I do not think AI will replace any doctors soon, I think AI and Robotics are going to be key assistive technologies that doctors can use to augment their time for better focus on their areas of expertise.There are many companies in AI and healthcare that are working very hard to bring this very powerful assistive technology, to help doctors and their patient and improve healthcare in general. I have a list of top 12 AI and healthcare startups in NYC, so let us dive in.
