Artificial intelligence is instrumental in changing the way new generations will interact with the world around them. In nearly every field, great new technologies have emerged that benefit society in both practical and personal ways ranging from self-driving cars to smart bot opponents in video games. However, the field that could be reaping the most benefit is also the most reluctant to accept this new wave of technology. The medical field stands to save more lives, spend less public money on data analysis, and free up physician time for more patient interactions among many other benefits. Yet, the most we have seen by way of widespread incorporation of smart technologies in the system was a failed experiment called MYCIN which recommended antibiotics based on bacteria identification. We will focus on the barriers to moving out of the research phase into more practical applications, current research in the field, and future steps needed to advance health technologies.
