Special Issue "Medical Artificial Intelligence"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2021).
Artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications are now the hottest research areas. In recent years, there have been more and more AI applications in the medical field. AI technology is promoting the development of the medical and health industries. In the medical domain, AI techniques can be used to develop clinical decision support systems to help with medical diagnostics. AI technologies can be also deployed in various medical devices, trackers, and information systems. A huge amount of patient data is recorded in the electronic medical record (EMR) database, including diagnosis, medical history, medications, and lab results. Through the process of extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL), researchers can generate a patient dataset worthy of analysis by AI techniques. In addition to the data analysis using structure data, AI techniques are now used for medical image recognition, medical text, and semantic recognition, and molecular biological testing. The analysis results can be used as a reference for the evaluation of patients by the medical team.
This Special Issue seeks original, high-quality contributions that investigate AI applications in healthcare. The main topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- AI and big data analytics applied in medical domain;
- AI methodologies for medical data analysis;
- Administrative data analysis using AI techniques;
- Medical data acquisition, cleaning and integration using AI methodologies;
- Medical image recognition using AI technologies;
- Natural language processing in medical documents.
