People with chronic conditions account for a huge percentage of hospital admissions, prescriptions filled, and physician visits in the US.
Machines may not be able to comprehend concepts and reason like humans, but they are becoming increasingly intelligent. Once relegated to the realm of science fiction, machines that can think and learn are now commonplace and part of everyday life.
