AI and robotics are transforming healthcare

AI is becoming more proficient at completing human-like tasks more quickly, efficiently, and inexpensively. Therefore, both robotics and AI have enormous potential in healthcare. Like in our daily lives, our healthcare ecosystem is becoming increasingly reliant on AI and robotics.

SIX examples that show the current state of this shift have been highlighted.



Applications and apps for technology support proactive maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and encourage individuals to adopt healthier behaviors. It gives the customer a control over their health and wellbeing.

Additionally, AI improves healthcare workers’ capacity to comprehend the regular patterns and requirements of the patients, enabling them to offer superior feedback, direction, and support for maintaining health.


AI is already being used to more precisely and early diagnose diseases like cancer. For example, the American Cancer Society claims that a large percentage of mammograms provide misleading results, telling one in two healthy women they have cancer. AI’s application makes mammography reviews and translations 30 times faster with 99% correctness, eliminating the need for pointless biopsies.


Healthcare businesses are using IBM’s Watson for Health to deploy cognitive technology to unlock massive volumes of health data and enable diagnostics. Watson can review and store exponentially more medical data than any human, including every medical publication, symptom, and case study of a treatment’s effectiveness worldwide.


Predictive analytics can support clinical decision-making and actions and help prioritize administrative activities. Improving treatment involves the alignment of massive health data with suitable and timely judgments.

Another area where AI is starting to take root in healthcare is the use of pattern recognition to identify people at risk of getting a condition or seeing it worsen.

For more than 30 years, medical robots have been in use. They range from basic laboratory robots to extremely sophisticated surgical robots that can work alongside a human surgeon or carry out procedures on their own. They are being used by hospitals and labs for repetitive jobs, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and support for people with long-term problems in addition to surgery.


As we near the end, diseases like dementia, heart failure, and osteoporosis are causing us to pass away in a different and slower manner than in prior generations. Additionally, it is a stage of life where loneliness is a common problem.

Robots have the potential to completely transform end-of-life care by enabling patients to maintain their independence for longer and decreasing the need for inpatient care and nursing facilities. In addition, AI is making it possible for robots to go even further and interact socially with humans to keep aging minds sharp through “conversations” and other social interactions.


One of the more recent applications of AI in healthcare is drug discovery. It may help to possibly reduce the time to market for new pharmaceuticals as well as their prices by applying the most recent developments in AI to automate the drug discovery and drug repurposing processes.
