Program Description: 

Artificial intelligence is to study and develop machines (computers, robots and physical systems) that can carry out tasks commonly dependent on human intelligence such as seeing, understanding, recognition, communication, decision making and translating languages independently without the human assistance. Artificial intelligence systems are called systems that can be similar to human intelligent behaviors, including understanding complex conditions, simulating thinking processes and human reasoning practices and their response to them, learning and the ability to gain knowledge and reason for solving issues.


Artificial Intelligence in Medical Sciences specifically is focusing and developing applications of artificial intelligence in medical sciences such as predicting, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, its use in areas such as pharmacy, psychiatry, rehabilitation, making smart monitoring device health, building robots and devices help patients and people with disabilities and build devices for promoting the human senses.



  • Training the creative force and processor to increase the efficiency of information in the field of health
  • Organizing the information storage and facilitating access to them in health fields
  • Processing and converting data collected in the health area to quantitative information required for treatment staff to distinguish, predict and provide effective treatment
  • Reducing the risk of diagnostic and therapeutic errors and reducing medical costs
  • Eliminating the limitation of providing medical treatments to help patients who are not allowed to attend a specialist doctor and help treat patients through developed diagnostic and therapeutic methods developed by artificial intelligence as well as products produced with artificial intelligence knowledge.
  • Qualitative and quantitative provision of health care services with reduced related costs
  • Using current developed models or new models in artificial intelligence to solve the issues of medical sciences and meet the needs of this area
