Artificial Intelligence is starting to transform healthcare beyond recognition. The vision for tech companies is to get AI computers to diagnose diseases as well as a human doctor, which could ultimately result in accessible, more affordable, better healthcare for almost everyone.

Dr Hannah Fry (pictured) uncovers the controversial inside story of this revolution in healthcare, with privileged behind-the-scenes access to tech companies leading the way in healthcare innovation.
