AI: Anticipate Brighter, Longer, and Better Health Future

AI: Anticipate Brighter, Longer, and Better Health Future

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Friday, April 26, 2019

Artificial IntelligenceBy 2021, Frost & Sullivan, a consultant firm, anticipates artificial intelligence (AI) systems to generate $6.7 billion in healthcare revenue worldwide. One area that is substantially changing in machine learning is genomics. While the ramifications for human health have been given much attention, genetic sequencing and analysis could also be groundbreaking for agriculture and animal husbandry.  When researchers can sequence and evaluate DNA, which makes artificial intelligence systems quicker, cheaper, and more precise, they gain insight into the specific genetic blueprint that instigates all of that organism's activities. With this input, they can end up making care decisions of what an organism might be resistant to in the future, what mutations could cause various diseases and how to prepare for the future.

Modern genome research functions on comprehension and anticipating how complex features, such as biases to frequent diseases, are determined by genetic differences between humans. While the potential for genome analysis is rapidly advancing, knowledge of how our genetic material defines these characteristics is mostly restricted to correlations.  Using sophisticated types of machine learning today guarantees decisive progress. In particular, so-called deep learning could make it possible not only to read human genomes as before but also to understand the actual biophysical relationships and mechanisms that make genetic predispositions physical.

The new ways are based on the combination of artificial intelligence with advancing techniques for genome analysis and automated laboratory platforms. It might well provide large amounts of data on genome modifications and distinct cellular processes, such as gene reading or the occurrence of various types of proteins under different environments. It inevitably leads to hope for new, far more effective cancer, cardiovascular or dementia therapies.

Knowledge of which genetic information should be reinterpreted in order to accomplish those effects and the latest methods of genome editing, such as CRISPR-Cas, also raise ethical issues. The international trend could be to go over rare hereditary diseases and also to prevent widespread diseases like breast cancer or diabetes through a "preventive correction" of the accompanying risk mutations in the human embryo germline. In the extreme scenario, this advancement could result in increasing adoption by non-medical interventions of' enhancements' of the human genome.

Pharmacogenomics, genetic screening tools for newborns, agricultural improvements and more are expected to be part of the future for AI and gene technology. We will embrace the changes as artificial intelligence becomes the norm in the medical community and anticipate brighter, longer, and better health futures.
