    Artificial intelligence and augmented reality in (respiratory) healthcare – present and future

    Abstract

    For 70% of the world population healthcare is inadequate, expensive and far away. The use of digital healthcare in combination with artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) has the potential to improve that. It enhances the way patients receive their treatment and is beginning to have an impact on medicine in many areas. For example, due to AI clinicians are starting to get supported by rapid, accurate image interpretation. Health systems improve their workflows and medical errors due to insufficient data flow are potentially reduced. Patients get enabled to process their own data and to selfmanage their health.

    Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real-world are "augmented" by computer-generated perceptual information. This new technology is enhancing medicine and healthcare towards more safety and efficiency. For now, AR has already made significant changes in the following medical areas: surgery (minimally invasive surgery); education of future doctors; diagnostics; education of patients in home environment.

    In respiratory medicine AI and AR have the potential to improve respiratory drug delivery by novel, innovative smart inhalers, enhanced patient education, training programs and comprehensive patient monitoring programs.
