Artificial intelligence (AI) approaches have recently made major impacts in the healthcare field, igniting a heated discussion over whether AI physicians would eventually replace human doctors. Human doctors are unlikely to be replaced by machines anytime soon, but AI may assist physicians make better clinical decisions or even replace human judgment in certain areas of healthcare (e.g., radiology). The increased availability of healthcare data and the rapid development of big data analysis tools have made recent productive applications of AI in healthcare possible. When driven by appropriate clinical queries, powerful AI systems may find clinically valuable information hidden in enormous volumes of data, which can help clinical decision making. The internet of things (IoT) is a network of many interconnected things that may communicate with one another across a computer network. We may get information from this global network by connecting sensors to it. Thanks to the computer network, we can obtain this information from anywhere on the planet. The internet of things (IoT) enables physical objects to connect to the internet and create systems using various technologies such as near-field communication (NFC) and wireless sensor networks (WSN).
