Artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized healthcare in the past few decades (1). Initially being used solely as a medical decision support system, it is anticipated that AI has a potential role in personalized medicine, patient monitoring and improve health service delivery and management (2). AI has penetrated the health care domain rapidly in high income settings where an estimated USD 150 million could be saved with such applications in the next 5 years (3). However, there is limited literature available on its use in low resource settings.
