Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is widely used in the healthcare sector, relieving the burden on doctors and supporting them in taking medical decisions. Michael Krauthammer's vision for healthcare is to create a medical data repository that allows data to be exchanged worldwide, to supplement insights from clinical trials with data from daily medical practice. This would broaden doctors' horizons beyond their own patients to hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide. As the task of building up and maintaining this hypothetical medical data repository with anonymized patient data is highly complex, it will require the help of AI.
