Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a ubiquitous term that is used in many fields of research or the popular culture. Among these fields that was affected by this hype is the healthcare sector. Along with its subdomain, Machine Learning (ML), they established an environment of interest in the promises of machines versus humans capabilities. Though artificial intelligence applications in healthcare such as interpreting ECGs could date back to the mid of the twentieth century, the promises of AI still at its beginning when it comes to new breakthroughs. This is due to the transformation into a digital world and new advancements in the processing capabilities. Computer vision has contributed the most to the healthcare sector where it can leverage doctors and practitioners with automated classification and annotations as a preparing step. This kind of mechanism is the best suited for applications of AI in healthcare. However, the amount of data in other forms such as textual or lab results is exceeding the force power. While a solution could be to use machines to learn and propose solutions, the results could be catastrophic and human lives are on stake. So, explainable AI could be beneficial where it analyzes and makes predictions that can be trusted by the users. The study here is conducted on cardiovascular patients dataset to predict the presence or absence of the disease. Classifications techniques used include Nave Bayes, Logistic Regression, Decision Trees, Support Vector Machines, and Artificial Neural Networks. The Logistic regression model achieved the best Area under the curve. Moreover, an extension of the previous studies discussed is conducted to explain the model and to show how models of AI can be trusted and not used as black-boxes.

One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In Deep Medicine, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, Deep Medicine shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.
