Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Artificial intelligence is defined as "the capacity of machines to mimic the cognitive functions of humans”. The term was first used in 1956 at the summer workshop at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, organized by John McCarthy, an American computer scientist, pioneer, and inventor.
For many years, artificial intelligence remained a research box, tested in different types of human activity, including healthcare, where a narrow type of artificial intelligence, called "computer aided diagnosis (CAD)”, has been used to improve the accuracy of diagnostic tests.
More recently, with the improvement of convolutional neural networks and the evolution of machine learning toward deep learning, artificial intelligence entered into medical research and clinical practice.
The aim of this Special issue is to explore and collect the ongoing research activities and clinical application of artificial intelligence in the field of Diagnostics.
