Abstract

Artificial Intelligence (AI) to support the medical decision-making process has long been both an interest and concern of physicians and the public. However, the introduction of open source software, supercomputers, and a variety of industry innovations has accelerated the progress of the development of AI in clinical decision support systems. This article summarizes the current trends and challenges in the medical field, and presents how AI can improve healthcare systems by increasing efficiency and decreasing costs. At the same time, it emphasizes the centrality of the role of physicians in utilizing AI as a tool to supplement their decisions as they provide patient-oriented care.
