Healthcare and A.I.

(back to 100 A.I. home)

Between 2019 and 2119,  much of the advancement in AI came about through a desire to improve human health. The desire to analyze large amounts of health data and make better medical analyses pushed early AI technology forward in the first two decades of the 21st century. Early successes in these areas pushed investments and improvements but it did not reduce costs. As curing disease was reduced to data analysis, the harvesting of replacement body parts was achievable, and the augmentation of humans through merging with machines, the advances in medicine were too costly for most humans. For those who could afford it, these advances brought about de facto immortality.
