Keywords: Artifcial Intelligence; Big Data; Health Management; Personalized Medicine


This article explores the opportunities and challenges of artifcial intelligence (AI) and big data for health management. It argues that AI and big data can revolutionize health management by enabling personalized, preventive, and predictive medicine; enhancing health research and innovation; and transforming health systems and policies. However, it also acknowledges that AI and big data pose ethical, legal, social, and technical challenges and risks that need to be addressed and mitigated. It proposes that ethical and governance frameworks forAI and big data for health should be based on human values and principles. The article provides an overview of the main aspects of health management that can be revolutionized byAI and big data, as well as some recommendations or suggestions for future research or practice in this feld.
