In the medical industry, what value will artificial intelligence bring. Research shows that “by 2023, the global medical IT market is expected to reach a staggering $222.16 billion, and only part of it will come from artificial intelligence and machine learning.”

Although there is a continuous trend around artificial intelligence, unlike other industries, the adoption of artificial intelligence in the medical vertical field is still in its infancy. In 2019, these five AI trends will bring changes to the medical industry.
