The Rise of the Machines

Artificial Intelligence and the Healthcare Industry

The Rise of the Machines

Arnold Schwarzenegger and the fictional Terminator movie franchise popularized the idea of machines surpassing human intelligence, and we all laughed (or cried, depends on who's side you were on in the movie.)

However, in today's world, this fictional story of machines being able to "think" and "learn" is now a reality. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are behind some of today's most popular technologies. Take for example Google's Assistant who recently called and made a reservation at a hair salon (View it here) in such a manner that myself and the person on the other end of the phone thought it was a human being. Scary, huh?
