AI enabled machines using deep learning algorithms has been shown to exceed human performance, particularly in visual tasks like playing Atari games, strategic board games like Go and object recognition etc. Furthermore, with the technological advancement in mobile computing, artificial neural networks, robotics, storage of huge data in internet, cloud-based machine learning and information processing algorithms etc. application of AI has been integrated in many sectors including transportation, service robots, health care, education, low-resource communities, public safety and security, employment and workplace, and entertainment etc. In this review, we have highlighted the recent trends and applications of AI in healthcare i.e. mining medical records (EHR), designing treatment plans, robotics mediated surgeries, medical management and supporting hospital operations etc. There are many AI platform has been designed which has also been proved to be instrumental in the development of innovative drugs. There is no doubt that AI will enhance the cooperation between humans and machines in years to come and will play an integral role in the improvement of the health index and quality of life.
