Core Tip

Core Tip: Artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential in diagnosing colorectal cancer have been the subject of various reviews in the literature. However, this review reports the most recent discoveries and studies on artificial and machine learning in colorectal cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as the future roles that AI applications may play in assisting in the treatment of colorectal cancer. Furthermore, this review talks about prospects and constraints for the use of AI systems, as well as the need for large-scale randomized clinical trials to examine AI algorithms before they can be implemented.
