The AI Revolution

If there is something we humans should take great pride in, it’s our ability of adapting to any situation. No matter how the big of a challenge we have to deal with, sooner or later we always seem to find a way. Over the years, we have come across many existential roadblocks, some that we didn’t even see coming, in the form of natural calamities, financial recessions like The Great Depression, and many more, but we have emerged from them better than ever before. Our knack of making the required tweaks, when needed, has made us the prominent example of unwavering resilience. This resilience was on display once again when Covid 19 hit our lives and transformed everything. All of a sudden we were not allowed to leave our houses, and if for some reason we have to go out, we cannot leave without a mask covering our face. A new normal was imposed on the world.

Nevertheless, we didn’t shy away from these testing times, and neither did the medical world that found itself under an unimaginable amount of stress. Medical institutions were overwhelmed with cases. Patients were dying left, right, and center. Doctors were asked to practically live inside the hospitals. If there was a way out, it would have been really hard to spot, but eventually we did spot it. To manage the chaotic circumstances, the medical sphere put their trust in technology, and the whole situation suddenly had an element of being a blessing in disguise. The severity of the virus forced us to explore alternatives for better accuracy, and that’s how we stumbled upon AI-driven imaging techniques for anesthesiology.

There has been a sticking need for quicker and more accurate procedure to administer nerve block. A step was taken in that direction when Intel and Samsung joined forced to achieve that. With the help of AI, they created NerveTrack, a real-time nerve tracking ultrasound feature. NerveTrack promises to be a big help in eliminating the extended periods spent in locating right nerve. Not only that, but often this process becomes about human guesswork, so NerveTrack ensures that medical professionals are clocking better precision. If we are talking numbers, NerveTrack reduces the required scanning time by 30 percent, and bolsters accuracy by 20 percent. This new technology is already being deployed across selective medical institutions, with an expansion waiting on the wings.
