JADA+ Explores Artificial Intelligence in Dentistry

ADA’s SCDI releases new white paper on AI in dentistry


Artificial intelligence (AI) once seemed to be the stuff of far-flung science fiction. But today, in an era of self-driving cars and instant answers from Alexa or Siri, AI has become a staple in our daily lives. Many of the conveniences we’ve come to count on—fraud alerts on our bank accounts, up-to-the-minute traffic updates, and e-mail spam filters—are driven by AI technologies such as machine learning and cognitive computing. It’s likely that in the coming years, AI will also be integral to clinical care and practice management in dentistry.
