I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks.
Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Artificial Intelligence and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.

Artificial intelligence in COVID-19 drug repurposing.
Drug repurposing or repositioning is a technique whereby existing drugs are used to treat emerging and challenging diseases, including COVID-19. Drug repurposing has become a promising approach because of the opportunity for reduced development timelines and overall costs. In the big data era, artificial intelligence (AI) and network medicine offer cutting-edge application of information science to defining disease, medicine, therapeutics, and identifying targets with the least error. In this review, guidelines are introduced on how to use AI for accelerating drug repurposing or repositioning, for which AI approaches are not just formidable but are also necessary.

What are the new roles for clinicians in the age of artificial intelligence (AI). With the rapid developments of digital picture processing, pattern recognition, and intelligent algorithms, artificial intelligence (AI) applications are now widely used in medicine. Applications of artificial intelligence in medicine (AIM) include diagnosis generation, therapy selection, healthcare management and disease stratification. AIM focuses on assisting clinicians in disease detection, quantitative measurements, and differential diagnosis which improves diagnostic accuracy and optimizes treatment selection.
