We All Know about AI in Medicine By Now. Here’s Why It Really Matters.

In this special guest feature, Eran Atlas, Co-Founder & CEO of DreaMed Diabetes, discusses how the rapid incorporation of artificial intelligence in medicine is no longer a novel trend, with more fields than ever developing improved solutions and protocols. Yet the intricacies of AI have often made it a difficult success story to explain to the average Joe. While AI’s huge leap forward has provided much needed clarity and assistance to medical decision-makers, its positive effects have not been as crystal clear for the general public, meaning patients and prospective patients, have no clue how it helps. This article details how AI in medicine helps and affects patients themselves, and not just the guys and gals wearing the white coats.
