Special Issue "Artificial Intelligence in Health Care"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Communication".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 April 2020.
A Topical Collection on “Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare”, in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, is being organized. For detailed information on the journal, please refer you to the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is still a relatively new technology in healthcare, and its adoption remains low. Several studies have been done to show the efficacy of using AI in healthcare and medicine, but only few have been adopted in the real clinical practice. In fact, an active discussion is ongoing about whether AI will eventually replace human physicians in the future. Actually, AI solutions are aimed at gaining information, processing it, and giving a well-defined output to the end-user (the physician, the patient, or the caregiver). The final goal is to give support to physicians in their decisions, and to help patients and caregivers better manage their diseases and therapy.
This Topical Collection is open to the subject area of artificial intelligence applied to healthcare. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
The following kinds of papers will be considered:
- Contributed papers: detailed expositions of new research or applications.
- Case studies: evaluative and descriptive reviews of existing solutions applied in practice, discussing the experience gained and lessons learnt from using or developing AI systems in the healthcare field.
- Survey papers/tutorials.
