Artificial Intelligence

Applications in Medicine and Biology

Edited by Marco Antonio Aceves Fernandez

Universidad Autonoma de Queretaro

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking on an increasingly important role in our society today. In the early days, machines fulfilled only manual activities. Nowadays, these machines extend their capabilities to cognitive tasks as well. And now AI is poised to make a huge contribution to medical and biological applications. From medical equipment to diagnosing and predicting disease to image and video processing, among others, AI has proven to be an area with great potential. The ability of AI to make informed decisions, learn and perceive the environment, and predict certain behavior, among its many other skills, makes this application of paramount importance in today's world. This book discusses and examines AI applications in medicine and biology as well as challenges and opportunities in this fascinating area.
