The use of deep learning in medicine is beginning to have an impact upon clinicians, healthcare systems and patients. The journey has just begun.

  1. In the near future, almost every type of clinician, ranging from specialty doctor to paramedic, will be using AI technology, and in particular deep learning.
  2. Using electronic health record data, machine- and deep-learning algorithms are already predicting many important clinical parameters.
  3. The goal for patients is to develop deep-learning algorithms to support them to take their health care into their own hands.
