The very advanced Artificial Intelligence technology has transformed many sectors and it has now become a part of our day to day life. Virtual Personal Assistants like Siri, Google Now, and Cortona are the best examples the use of AI in our day to day life. Other than this, video games, fraud detection, online customer support are some examples of AI implementation.
But these are just very nominal uses of AI as it has been implemented and used to revolutionize many sectors and one such sector which is being greatly affected and transformed by AI is health care.
