In the 2012 sci-fi film ‘Prometheus’, a robot is seen performing surgeries albeit without human control. While that may be a bit far-fetched — as reel life is — Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare is here to stay — whether we like it or not.
AI is making inroads into healthcare like never before with a promise to make healthcare faster, accessible to everyone and cut costs.
Cut to India, and the health challenges are many and diverse. There is apalpable human resource shortage and oftten, healthcare does not reach remote areas.
That being the scenario, can AI help in providing sustainable healthcare here?
