It is human nature to find ways to do more with less and faster. This instinct is at the root of all advances and inventions that resulted in the Industrial Revolutions (IR). The first industrial revolution in 1760 marked the development of the steam engine. Then the mass industrial production and electricity, automation, and electronics denoted the second and the third industrial revolutions. Currently, the 4th industrial revolution (4IR) is upon us. With the advancements in information technology and the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), boundaries have blurred between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. AI, synonymous with the 4IR, encompasses a wide range of applications of data sciences into a broad scope of functionalities and data-driven predictions in our daily lives, including healthcare.
