The Future Of Health: Unlocking The Potential Of Artificial Intelligence For Healthcare In Africa
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is defined as: “the imitation of human acumen in machines that are typically programmed to imitate human actions.” It is interdisciplinary science with numerous approaches of machine learning in the technology industry. In the recent past, AI has moved from being a futuristic promise into a reference point for innovation and is making it’s way out of research laboratories in Africa. Due to its potential, stakeholders and governments around the world are taking steps and collaborating to ensure responsible development and leapfrog the use of AI. There is still much to be learned from organisations that are changing health outcomes around the world, and Africa is no exception.
