Machine Learning

What is machine learning?

Machine learning is a style of artificial intelligence (AI) that uses computer science algorithms and data to replicate human thinking and learning. Machine learning stores and processes intelligence to perform its intended function. As the machine learns new information, its accuracy advances.   

Why is machine learning important to healthcare?

Machine learning is important because it can analyze data, helping healthcare providers make clinical decisions personalized to patients. Machine learning helps organizations establish new medical procedures, develop drugs and manage chronic conditions. For health systems and hospitals, machine learning can also reduce costs and increase efficiency.
