Artificial intelligence and management of diabetes mellitus

Diabetes mellitus is a common medical condition now considered a major public health challenge. Developing new tools for patient management is essential to increase their quality of life. This episode presents how artificial intelligence can be applied to the treatment of diabetes, particularly in the prediction of the presence of pain in patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy and in the detection of gestational diabetes.
