Artificial Intelligence


Three convergences of the digital world have an impact on world life, the use of artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and autonomy. This can be seen clearly in the development of many industries in the world, whose valuation increases are companies that are able to adopt these three things. It seems to have grown quite exponentially and heavily influenced medicine. It reveals that nearly 72% of AI research within orthopedics have been published in the past 2 years.1 Artificial intelligence (AI) is the application of algorithms that provide machines the ability to solve problems that traditionally required human intelligence. AI at its core involves machines that can perform tasks innately characteristic of human intelligence. This includes tasks like planning, understanding language, recognizing patterns, learning, and problem-solving. AI can be thought of as an umbrella term that encompasses a broad range of subfields, including machine learning (ML), which in turn contains a subfield called deep learning (DL).2,3
