AI: The missing algorithm between 3D scanners & printers
Personalised medicine is just that - personal. This sounds like the perfect application for 3D technologies, but so far 3D scanners and printers are only able to replicate shape. The human body is a very complicated system; it has shape, but also texture, hardness, and heat. 3D printers are increasingly used in the medical field but with some backlash. Components made from a 3D scan can be some of the most uncomfortable devices for patients because the 3D scanners aren’t able to capture and process all the types information like a human doctor can. Is this a job for AI?
