Academic scientists and researchers once again revisit and review AI's significance to human health. For many years, artificial intelligence has proven that it is more than just a byproduct of technology.

Just recently in 2015, a group of academic researchers/scientists created the perfect AI model that could give an strong inkling on any possibilities from a group of young respondents to likely develop a brainwave irregularity, the Atlantic reported.

A number of presumed that the preliminary performance by the AI model was a mere product of accident. What followed next proved them wrong.

After having supported the model's findings by a group of neurologists in a separate lab, the young respondents were either flabbergasted or shocked to realize that they turn out to possess high percentages of developing psychosis in the near future. Enlightened, academics took in the model in large testing sites for health purposes.

How did the technology detect mental irregularities that reveal signs of psychosis or schizophrenia? The answer is speech recognition. There is much to say in the tone of one's voice. However, it could only take an artificial intelligence to decipher it, Wired stated.

Now, that is only tackling about mental health concerns. Everyone ought to wait until AI proves to function significantly in other major health areas. Thus, Robert Edgell of the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute enters in to perforate about the unique opportunity being forwarded by the AI technology.

For hindsight- many, headed by the Google DeepMind, are beginning to take a pill from machines in treating cancer for a not less than accurate targeting. Borne from the glorious hookup between the UK's National Health Service and the Alphabet's London-based artificial intelligence, research was eventually conducted at the University College London Hospital.

Ultimately, the research resulted to Google's DeepMind whereby doctors are being assisted largely in their preparations for head and neck cancer treatment, the Verge reported.

Finally, with the results going higher than projected, the academic scientists and researchers' revisiting of AI's significance to human health could be seen as an actual response to an available asset. The only question left is how to wisely propagate AI technology among healthcare units with the quality and quantity intact.
