How “Deep Learning” Is Helping
Doctors Save Lives


In the past century, the field of medicine has made miraculous advancements in lifesaving technology. Many diseases and conditions, fatal in previous generations, now have reliable cures, treatments, and preventions. As technology in communications, engineering, chemistry, and physics continues to develop, more possibilities open up for those who work in medicine. Until recently, though, nothing we’ve developed has been able to do the work for doctors.

Artificial intelligence is quickly changing that.

Advances in the field of “deep learning” have made it possible for machines to begin lightening the workload of doctors by performing certain tasks faster—and in some cases more accurately—than humans. This frees up medical professionals to focus on their true priority: treating patients. Today, we’ll take a look at A.I., and several ways it’s making life easier for medical practitioners.
