Humans have been interested in artificial intelligence for as long as you or I can remember. If you’re a science fiction fan you’ll have seen it in both good (i.e. Star Trek’s Lt. Commander Data and Star Wars’ C3P0) and bad forms (i.e. The Terminator or Hal 9000 from 2001 – A Space Odyssey) since the 1980s. Suffice to say, we’re still a ways away from having Vision or Ultron, both from the Avengers, running around. However, AI has become the new buzzword in health technology because of its potential to reduce the risk of disease, help with decisions such as palliative care vs. hospice, and ultimately create overall risk stratification. AI requires data, and as the thirst for more data has grown in the past decade, the ability to filter out the “noise” has become a much more difficult task.
