US Industry Report on AI Applications in Healthcare： Artificial intelligence and healthcare drive in both directions
Silicon Valley AI + Healthcare Study Released!
In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has developed rapidly, from AlphaGo's back-to-back defeats of human chess players to the intelligent robots seen everywhere in shopping malls, AI has moved from the lab to the masses, and both public opinion and investment in related fields are growing by the day.
The amount of capital invested by US VCs in AI and deep learning has reached $3.6 billion in the first and second quarters of 2017, more than in all of 2016.
What's more, AI technology has also arrived to reach a new stage, giving rise to huge momentum in various industries such as industry, healthcare, SaaS, agriculture and many more. The highest growth rate of this application is in AI in healthcare.
At the same time, the combination of AI and health care is also "two-way driven". On the one hand, numerous technologies of artificial intelligence have been reflected in excellent commercial value in healthcare; on the other hand, innovative AI technologies have brought new opportunities for healthcare innovation. In particular, by integrating traditionally discrete physiological information through technologies such as machine learning, the future trend towards personalization and direction in healthcare will come more clearly and quickly.
This report provides important data and information on the healthcare sector in the US AI field, including investment trends, industry growth rates, distribution of important AI healthcare innovation centers, key case studies such as IBM Watson, etc. It also hopes to analyze the application and development of AI in the healthcare field in each of the four segments: machine learning, NLP (natural language processing), computer vision and intelligent robotics.
