Introduction: Artificial intelligence is a relevant subject in computer science that has the capability
to assess complex data of any kind. It derives its power from parallel data processing and logical
thinking. Engineers who work in medical fields have explored what artificial intelligence can do
in finding the relevant relationships between patients and diseases. That helps us find a diagnosis
and treatment and to predict the outcome.
Methods: Medline and internet searches played a significant role in this research, using the
keywords ‘artificial intelligence’ and ‘machine learning’. More references were acquired from
other relevant articles. Such techniques using artificial intelligence are covered in this research
Results: There are many different AI applications that can be applied in almost every field of
medicine. Neural network assessments on recognition are commonly used as a verification of
diagnosis, even while there are some other techniques, such as fuzzy expert systems and hybrid
intelligent systems.
Discussion: The potential of articial intelligence is very high and should be extremely valuable
when applied to the field of medicine.

Key Words: machine learning, artificial intellegence, neural networks

diagnosis, the making of critical decisions, and the
predicting of possible outcome. They are created to
help healthcare workers such as doctors, interns and

clinicians in their daily routine. Also, it helps with

tasks that need to be assessed and applied with
significant amounts of knowledge. Such medical
systems carry artificial neural networks (ANNs),
fuzzy expert systems, and hybrid intelligent systems.
