Dr. Iván Suazo


This editorial reflects on the emergence of artificial intelligence and how it is applied in the field of health. AI is a technology that mimics the functioning of the human brain and uses algorithms, machine learning, pattern recognition and cognitive computing to process large amounts of data and extract useful insights. AI can improve health and well-being of people in various areas of medicine, such as medical image analysis, diagnosis, treatment, genetics, pregnancy and smart prosthetics. These applications can help medical professionals make better clinical decisions, accelerate research and development of new drugs, personalize patient care and reduce costs and human errors. AI can also empower users to access relevant information about their health and actively participate in their care. However, AI also poses ethical, legal and social challenges that must be addressed with responsibility and transparency.
