When you think of artificial intelligence (AI), you might imagine what you see in the movies: robots, self-driving vehicles, and computers that think and act like humans. You might already be using AI every day when you ask Siri or Alexa for help. AI might be better described as machine learning or deep learning, and it is a fast-growing part of medicine, changing how health care providers treat patients.
