It only happens occasionally, but whenever I go in for a checkup and there’s a new nurse, she promptly runs for a doctor after taking my blood pressure. She never waits for me to tell her it’s okay — that my blood pressure is typically low and I’m not going to keel over dead right there in front of her.

This is where artificial intelligence or AI would come in handy. For me it was just a simple blood pressure issue. For another MS patient, it could be something more serious.

Our world has rapidly transformed before our eyes; looking to be increasingly more automated by the second. From self-service checkouts and drone deliveries, to advanced voice recognition technologies and computer performed surgeries. Sooner than we realized it could happen, almost everything, including the future of medicine and healthcare; as it impacts disease management can also be expected to be heavily influenced by artificial intelligence (AI).

With Multiple Sclerosis becoming a leading cause of disability in developed countries like Canada and the United States, AI could soon become an essential tool in managing MS.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence is the technology of computer systems that exhibit intuitive behavior. AI systems are able to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as visual discernment, speech recognition and data management.

AI technology can be put into practice in a much wider number of industries beginning with basic vital areas such as data science, medicine and disease management.

Nerds and those curious by nature, have been tinkering on the fringes of artificial intelligence well before the 1950’s, when pioneering experiments were being carried out by Alan Turing; who developed a ground breaking theory of programming machines to perform tasks with human and life-like movements, reactions and thinking patterns.
