According to WHO, the number of Europeans aged 85 years and older is projected to rise from 14 million to 19 million by 2020 and to 40 million by 2050. Ageing population poses a threat to the economy as it increases old-age dependency ratio as well as government spending on healthcare and pensions. With healthcare systems under increasing pressure due to staffing levels and financial constraints, AI can truly augment human activity, offering more accurate diagnosis quickly, and aiding decision-making in hospitals.
From hospital care to clinical research, drug development and insurance, AI applications are already revolutionising how the health sector works to reduce spending and improve patient outcomes. The AI can be used as augmented intelligence that enables doctors to perform their best by providing them with timely, data-driven recommendations that they can accept, reject or modify based on their personal expertise and their judgment of the situation context in real-time. Also, the proliferation of AI-based consumer wearables and medical devices helps oversee early-stage heart disease, enabling doctors and other caregivers to monitor and detect potentially life-threatening symptoms at treatable stages.
