Abstract:

The amount of digital information is recently quickly growing. It is ahead of the increasing of computers upgrading. It was named Big data by journal «Nature» in 2008. The EMC corporation predicts that increasing of digital data will be larger than 40 zettabytes to 2020, that is larger than the sand grains across all the beaches of the world. The most difficult is not only data storage, but data processing. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology for creating smart programs and machines that can solve the necessary tasks and generate new information based on the existing. In fact, AI models the human intellectual activity. In accordance with well-known expert opinions, one of the most perspective applications of AI is medicine. The article presents a review of the basis and algorithms of AI, shows the opportunity of AI system application in the lung cancer diagnostic.
