AI: Shaping the Future of Healthcare

Healthcare stands out as one of the least digitized economic sectors and a bona fide latecomer to the opportunity of automation. While other industries have made great strides leveraging the power of automation everywhere from the factory floor to the living room floor, healthcare had seemed content to remain in a state of complacency, with extremely low productivity gains in the past decade.

The result was a simple, plug-and-play method that allowed even those of us without a creative bone in our bodies to “paint” like an arti...
