Healthcare sector has gained many benifits from the implementation of disruptive technologies.

Artificial Intelligence,  Machine Learning and Deep Learning are taking a very important role for the very high level improvement of the sector. DL in the healthcare sector has the ability to analyze the medical data at exceptional speeds without compromising on it’s accuracy. So plentiful – fast, efficient, accurate are the key benefits of the DL in Healthcare sector but benefits are not limited to these only, it has lots more. DL uses mathematical and statistical models that are designed to operate almost like a human brain.

In the healthcare sector Deep Learning is successfully used in medical imaging solutions, for identifying patterns in patient symptoms, DL algorithms can identify specific types of cancer, and DL imaging solutions can be used to identify rare diseases. Deep learning takes an important role for the  medical professionals to identify treatment issues early, so they are able to deliver far more personalized and relevant patient care. Here are some very important applications of Deep Learning in the healthcare sector.

Medical imaging and diagnostics: Medical images like X-ray, MRI scan, CT scan, etc can be interpreted by Deep learning models to perform diagnosis. Recently invented computer vision is enabled by machine learning and deep learning so it is possible to do faster and easier diagnosis of diseases through medical imaging.

Personalized treatment: Deep learning models  easily analyze a patient’s health data, his medical history, vital symptoms, medical test results, and so on. ML models can use deep neural networks to analyze real-time data collected from connected devices and predict the patient’s upcoming health conditions or risks and provide him specific medicines or treatments.

Patient monitoring and smart health record:Deep learning can be used to classify the structured and unstructured medical data and  maintain smart health records. DL can help in intelligently monitoring the patients and predict their risks by analyzing the lots of real-time data collected from the healthcare devices.

Simplification of  Clinical Trials: Machine learning and deep learning models can be used for predictive analysis for identifying potential candidates for clinical trials from different data points and sources. Deep learning is also able to continuous monitoring of these trials with minimum errors.

Drug Discovery: Deep Learning has the significant role for identifying drug combinations. Disruptive technologies like AI, ML, and DL play very important roles in the pandemic like situation for vaccine and drug development. Drug discovery is a very complex and time consuming task, but deep learning can make it easier, faster, cost-effective r.

Health insurance and fraud detection: Health insurance providers are not lagging to advantages of Deep Learning. DL models can help them to predict the future trends and behavior for suggesting smart insurance policies to their clients. DL can be used to effectively identify insurance frauds and predict future risks.

            Implementation of Deep Learning for various healthcare applications are discussed so far in this blog . But all of the cases Deep Learning is still in early stages. So researchers can find out their research topics for implementing Deep Learning for further improvement.

We all live in a dynamic society which keeps on evolving in all aspects of life that certainly demands to all human beings to be in pace with it. This simply implies that to keep a pace & to cope with such dynamism we always have a scope for refinement or self improvement. Man is a social animal. We collectively make societies & countries of the world. This signifies the importance of enhancement & growth in each individual unit of the society which ultimately leads to constitute a better environment. Each one of us has a wide range for advancement in all domains of life with the help of a few measures listed below.

‘A healthy mind in a healthy body’ is the utmost objective of self development that can be achieved by self discipline. Making a routine for day to day activities ; starting from early wake-up time to early bed time, giving some time for physical & mental workout like yoga, meditation, some physical activity or a new hobby like gardening etc.

Keep yourself aware & updated by reading newspaper, watching TV news & debates on current issues. Reading other good literature & watching some entertainment TV programs etc. act as an additive to self development.

 Analyzing dietary habits is equally important. Necessary alterations should be made to make ones daily balanced healthy diet.

Good friends are a treasure. One should always choose good friends to improve mood, encourage positive behavior, boost good mental & emotional disposition. Always remember that the good time spent with the friends & family is worth every second. So make a strong emotional bond within the family as well.

Attain financial security. One should always consider the value received for the money spent. Achieve your financial goals with the help of proper financial planning & management. While considering your financial goals don’t forget the family & society.

Protecting the nature & it’s resources should always be kept in mind. The importance of free element Oxygen has been well understood during the current pandemic. So nurture nature. Give space for indoor plants. More trees be planted. Water conservation is another aspect wile considering self development as the natural water resources are depleting at a very fast pace.

In Indian Culture, Teacher (Guru) has been given the highest place in society. As per the Vedic and Puran literature, Guru has been placed equal or even above all the Gods & Goddesses.

गुरुर्ब्रह्मा ग्रुरुर्विष्णुः
गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः
गुरुः साक्षात् परं ब्रह्म
तस्मै श्री गुरवे नमः

Guru is Brahma (who plants the qualities of goodness), Guru is Vishnu (who nurtures and fosters the qualities of goodness), Guru is Maheswara (who weeds out the bad qualities), Guru is the supreme Brahman itself, Salute to such Guru!

5th September marks the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radahkrishan who was a staunch believer of education and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, recipient of Bharat Ratna, first Vice- President and second President of independent India, and above all, a teacher. Teachers’ day is celebrated in commemoration of his birthday and to pay a tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society.

As one looks at the great impact on the growth, development, and well-being of the students and nation, one must agree that teaching is a noble profession.
