Book Title

Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Resources Poor Healthcare Systems

Trends, Perspectives, and Application


Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data (BD) are the most useful technologies that could powerfully improve health care service delivery, especially in resource-poor countries (Resources Poor Healthcare Systems). Big Data basically consists of big amount of data coming from diverse sources in different formats, while AI includes machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) and can be used for repetitive tasks like diseases diagnosis, diseases screening, diseases prevention, early diseases detection, medical decision making, medical treatment using AI-based tools, nursing care at the end of life, home health and medical care, remote artificial doctor, etc.

Many countries, for example, China, are investing in AI for Healthcare to overcome challenges such as healthcare workforce shortage.

Doctors are slowly being assisted by a software system in their daily duties, for example in decision making. Though this can face some limitations. Most AI-based prediction tasks are done using DL technics/technology. However, DL applications are limited in explanatory capacity. A trained DL system cannot explain the “how” of performed predictions – even when the prediction outcomes are correct. This kind of “black box problem” is challenging, especially in healthcare, where doctors don’t want to make life-and-death decisions without a firm understanding of how the machine arrived at its recommendation (even if those recommendations have proven to be correct in the past). Since Data sciences have great potential, combining Data sciences (including Data analytics) with AI will be beneficial for Healthcare one on hand and other help to solve the black box issues generated by DL. Data science combines different algorithms, technologies, and systems and assists to extract the right information from well designed and collected data.

This book is looking to explore the concepts of AI (including machine learning, deep learning) and big data (including IoT and Smart City) in health care along with the recent research development with a focus on health care systems resources poor countries (Resources Poor Healthcare Systems) as well as in rural areas in developed countries. It would also include various real-time/offline applications and case studies in the field of engineering, computer science, IoT, Smart Cities with modern tools & technologies used in healthcare.

As a population grows and resources become scarcer, the efficient usage of these limited goods becomes more important. Smart cities are a key factor in the consumption of materials and resources. Built on and integrating with big data, the cities of the future are becoming a realization today. The integration of big data and interconnected technology along with the increasing population will lead to the necessary creation of smart cities. To continue providing people with safe, comfortable, and affordable places to live, cities must incorporate techniques and technologies to bring them into the future. We are looking forward to seeing the advances that will come to our cities soon.

The main objectives of this book are to analyze the chances of effectively using AI in healthcare, especially in resource-poor countries (Resources Poor Healthcare Systems). Furthermore, this book aims at presenting some use cases of AI in healthcare and though show its potential to improve care services delivery, overcome the forthcoming challenges, which will face the sector regarding the increasing world population, as well as resource scarcity and workforce shortage.

The reader will be provided with insight into AI, Big data, and Data sciences for healthcare, the state-of-the-art, chances, challenges, limitations, and perspectives, as well as future development. This book would cover disciplines such as, but not limited to, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Resources Poor Healthcare Systems: Theories, Chances, Trends, Perspectives, Future Development, and Applications is a fascinating addition to the literature in this discipline.
