Artificial intelligence in computing is a tool capable of analyzing large amounts of medical data of varying complexity. The work published by A N Ramesh and collaborators in Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2004 Sep; 86 (5): 334-8. doi: 10.1308 / 147870804290 does an analysis on the subject. The great power of artificial intelligence techniques to study a significant amount of data is very useful in the diagnosis, treatment and prediction of results in various fields of medicine. The article analyzes the various artificial intelligence techniques to apply in the medical area.

The broad power of artificial intelligence has been studied in most fields of the clinical area. For example, the artificial neural network was the most widely used data analysis tool, but there are other artificial intelligence techniques, such as fuzzy expert systems, evolutionary computing, and hybrid intelligent systems, which have been used in different clinical settings.

Artificial intelligence has the power to apply in most fields of medicine. More well-designed clinical trials are required before applying these techniques in the real clinical world.
