Ever since “Deep Blue” defeated the human champion chess player in 1997, artificial intelligence has caused extensive attention and discussion. With the development of computing and data storage technologies, artificial intelligence has been made great progress and applied in a wide range of fields. Here, we focus on several creative and novel applications of artificial intelligence in the healthcare field and also discuss their future trends.
