Abstract

The question on many lips is: Will Artificial Intelligence(AI) replace human doctors? It is already apparent that AI will be able to assist clinicians in making superior decisions clinically. AI can harvest the latest medical knowledge from literature,thereby assisting in the endeavor to provide optimal patient care by assisting physicans.AI can help significantly in the reduction of human diagnostic and therapeutic errors. Important legislations that regulate patient data,like the European Union’s GPDR and the HIPAA in the US,are very protective of patient privacy.These laws require hospitals to keep certain kinds of data within local systems,thereby limiting what can go up to servers in the cloud. The need of the hour is a solution that will fulfil 3 conditions:1. It must keep health information safe.2.It must be able to leverage the advantages provided by the crowd.3. It must be compliant with the privacy regulations of the government.
