Artificial intelligence (AI), also referred to as machine intelligence, has been increasingly entering all avenues of our lives (1-5). AI has enabled facial, object, speech, gesture and writing recognition, language translation, autonomous cars, internet searches, cyber and home security and many other areas. It has revolutionized diverse aspects of medical care, including electronic health records, guidance in medical diagnosis and treatment decisions, medical statistics, analysis of X-rays, CT-scans, MRIs, electrocardiograms (EKGs), evaluation of endoscopic and histologic images, robotics, and cellular and molecular biology including arrays and genome-, proteome- and metabolome- “omics”.
