Machine Learning in Cardiovascular Medicine addresses the ever-expanding applications of artificial intelligence (AI), specifically machine learning (ML), in healthcare and within cardiovascular medicine. The book focuses on emphasizing ML for biomedical applications and provides a comprehensive summary of the past and present of AI, basics of ML, and clinical applications of ML within cardiovascular medicine for predictive analytics and precision medicine. While the industrial applications of ML are nearly ubiquitous, its introduction into the medical field has been much more gradual. The landscape, however, is rapidly changing with the availability of computational power and the creation of large repositories of datasets.
