Electronic sensors and artificial intelligence could help doctors treat vulnerable patients in ways that improve the outcome without invading privacy, according to Stanford University.

Researchers have reviewed the field of ‘ambient intelligence’ in healthcare. It is an interdisciplinary effort to create AI systems-equipped smart hospital rooms that can do a range of things to have better patient outcomes.
