The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Health: A Strong Prognosis for 2023

November 20, 2017 | Research Report

Over the past few years, there has been a significant uptick in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in health care applications, as seen from the rapid rise in the number of patents filed, amount of venture money invested, and partnership activity. However, sharp criticism of some high-profile deployments, along with the unique challenges associated with the health care space, raise questions about where AI will find traction in this sector. In this report, we present a landscape of AI innovation in health care, highlighting some of the major use cases. Using a combination of the Lux technical signal, secondary research, and analyst insights gained via conversations with stakeholders and thought leaders in this space, we map out the commercial maturity of different use cases and project how the maturity of these use cases will evolve over the next five years.
