Core Tip

Core tip: Liver disease has inexorably risen as one of the leading causes of global death and disease burden. As a hot research topic in recent years, the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical fields has attracted extensive attention. The application of machine learning in the liver diseases can help clinical staff to diagnose and treat different liver diseases quickly, accurately and scientifically, which is of importance for reducing the incidence and mortality of liver diseases, reducing medical errors, and promoting the development of medicine. This paper reviews the application and prospects of AI in liver diseases.
