Advanced AI Creating New Avenues of Healthcare Efficiencies First, there was artificial intelligence (AI) that made machines capable of following mathematical directions to capture and store intelligence. Then came machine learning (ML), which advanced the machine intelligence to use collected data to make predictive solutions. We now have deep learning, a more intelligent subset of ML that is based on the human brain. As found on Medium, "Artificial Intelligence would be the bigger, encapsulating circle that contains Machine and Deep Learning".
One of the greatest challenges in providing excellent patient care is inefficiencies in data processing.
