Rapid advances in machine learning algorithms give medical professionals valuable tools to improve diagnostic accuracy, which helps identify appropriate treatments faster, improving health outcomes and reducing medical costs. The authors discuss what hurdles remain in the way of wide spread adoption of AI technologies, as well as their potential to transform the field of medicine.
