Medicine has entered the digital era, driven by data from new modalities, especially genomics and imaging, as well as new sources such as wearables and Internet of Things. As we gain a deeper understanding of the disease biology and how diseases affect an individual, we are developing targeted therapies to personalize treatments. There is a need for technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) to be able to support predictions for personalized treatments. In order to mainstream AI in healthcare we will need to address issues such as explainability, liability and privacy. Developing explainable algorithms and including AI training in medical education are many of the solutions that can help alleviate these concerns.
