Artificial intelligence has not been popular lately. Leading thinkers have attacked the concept—Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates have both voiced their concern. In a BBC interview, Hawking explains that the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.

It’s worth a look at different alternatives and use cases of how artificial intelligence could potentially bring value to the process of healthcare delivery and the treatment of diseases. Which options the healthcare community would then embrace is up to health leaders and patients to decide.
