AI and Edge Computing Healthcare Technology

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has transcended through many different sectors of our lives, opening up possibilities for machines to “think” on their own and automate tasks that were once done by humans, for faster and more accurate results. AI has also found its way into the medical industry. The combination of smart AI software paired with reliable, more powerful computer hardware allows for medical technology to incorporate deep learning, to ultimately lead to better patient care and medical outcomes of the patients.

Big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) have become major players in healthcare. The future of medical technology sees a world where AI can assist in or even take over some tasks that doctors are currently executing. For example, radiologists are tasked with analyzing ultrasounds to reach diagnoses for their patients. Whereas radiologists can review a few medical images at a time, AI software and it’s computer hardware building blocks can analyze multiple images at a swift pace. Based on the vast amount of historical data that the AI server has stored and has access to, the system can accurately recognize any abnormalities and calculate results on its own. And thanks to its constant learnings, AI technology can take it a step further by offering customized treatment plans based on the patient’s individual medical record.

Once AI-based medical technology can be perfected, the healthcare industry can improve and save lives, while cutting costs. It can eliminate the risk of human error in diagnoses and offer reliable, accurate information for expedited care and treatments. It can also improve the clinical workflow and free up time for doctors and physicians to interact with and consult with their patients, lessening the amount of time patients would have to wait for treatment.

To achieve that, highly reliable hardware that has compatibility with AI software is required. The hardware also requires high processing powers, multiple communication options and expandability to meet various needs of medical technology for easy deployment.
