With Google, IBM and Microsoft all setting sights squarely on healthcare, and analysts predicting 30 percent of providers will run cognitive analytics on patient data by 2018, the risk of investing too late may outweigh the risk of doing so too soon.
The arrival of artificial intelligence and its ilk — cognitive computing, deep machine learning — has felt like a vague distant future state for so long that it’s tempting to think it’s still decades away from practicable implementation at the point of care.
And while many use cases today are admittedly still the exception rather than the norm, some examples are emerging to make major healthcare providers take note.
