How did you use artificial intelligence today? If you think you haven’t, think again. AI is already powering so many of our everyday activities, and though you may not be intentionally leveraging it as a tool just yet, that’s likely to change in the very near future. The AI race is just getting started, as top tech companies build and improve their own large language models (LLM). Microsoft launched its own Bing AI chatbot last month, Google’s ‘Bard’ was released in March of this year, and we can’t forget about OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Though a prominent current events topic, creating the best large language model isn’t the only race within the world of AI.  AI has become a fixture in the healthcare, environmental conservation, education, and agriculture industries and it’s rapidly transforming our everyday lives for the better!

Embracing AI offers benefits such as enhanced efficiency, improved decision-making, and accelerating scientific progress. It can help solve complex global challenges such as climate change, resource management, and disease control.

Transforming Healthcare with AI: The Potential of AI Applications in the Medical Field

What if you could refill your prescription or schedule an appointment with your doctor using a virtual voice assistant? Using a chat response assistant could become a new norm in the future of our healthcare services.  

The University of Pennsylvania Health System recently tested ‘Penny,’ an AI chatbot, to help improve cancer care in patients taking oral chemotherapy. This augmented intelligence chatbot employs text-based conversational interactions to effectively support patients in navigating complex treatment regimens and minimize the risk of potential errors during their chemotherapy journey.  

AI algorithms can also analyze copious amounts of medical data, including patient records and medical images, to detect patterns and supply insights for exact diagnoses. Hospitals in Hungary have been using AI since 2021 to detect breast cancer that doctors might otherwise miss. Of course, a lot of testing and clinical trials come with any innovative technology implementation, but even in its testing stages, technologists and medical professionals are optimistic about the potential to improve healthcare outcomes and create more efficient resource allocation.

Another innovative health tool that’s still in the works is Google’s new DermAssist search app. It’s going to revolutionize skincare support! Users will be able to submit information about their skin by uploading three photos of their skin condition and answering a few questions from their phone or computer. Leveraging its extensive database of millions of skin-related images, DermAssist analyzes the submitted photos and information to identify potential skin conditions. Within a minute, users receive a comprehensive list of possible matching skin conditions, accompanied by valuable information about each one.
