Artificial Intelligence Predicting Heart Failure

Analysis of data is one of those things Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be good at. Researchers are finding that AI can predict heart failure as much as 9 months out, by analyzing electronic health records.
Researchers analyzed the records using deep learning, a type of artificial intelligence that can solve complex technical problems like face or speech recognition — sometimes even topping human performance.

This problem required computers to understand many types of health records — prescriptions or summaries of visits to doctors, for example — in many formats. Another challenge was tracking changes in the records over time to provide a full picture of patient health.
