This book aims to provide a refreshing, friendly and exciting manner artificial intelligence (AI) theoretical concepts and practical methods applied in obstetrics and gynaecology. The book follows the nine and a half months journey from preconception till birth alongside with AI. It discusses topics such as the poignant role of AI in improving the change of women getting pregnant; AI methods for detecting congenital anomalies in first and second trimester foetal sonography; how AI aids physicians in determining what type of birth should be deployed (vaginal versus caesarean); how AI can predict pre-eclampsia, preterm birth, mortality, birth weight, miscarriage, postpartum depression, etc. Additionally, it provides information on AI used for perinatal depression, for the evaluation of the relationship between pollutants and pregnancy outcome and even how AI tools can improve physician training in labour and delivery.
The book is designed for bioinformaticians, obstetric and gynaecology researchers and physicians, and all those who wish to learn how to explore, analyse, find novel potential solutions for the challenging domains: obstetrics and gynaecology. Likewise, this book will be useful for application engineers who wish to use AI paradigms in areas such as engineering and science too.
