The objective of this guideline is to provide medical device manufacturers and notified bodies instructions and to provide them with a concrete checklist to understand what the expectations of the notified bodies are, to promote step-by-step implementation of safety of medical devices, that implement artificial intelligence methods, in particular machine learning, to compensate for the lack of a harmonized standard (in the interim) to the greatest extent possible.
It presents artificial intelligence as the study of the design of intelligent computational agents. The book is structured as a textbook, but it is accessible to a wide audience of professionals and researchers. In the last decades we have witnessed the emergence of artificial intelligence as a serious science and engineering discipline. This book provides an accessible synthesis of the field aimed at undergraduate and graduate students. It provides a coherent vision of the foundations of the field as it is today. It aims to provide that synthesis as an integrated science, in terms of a multi-dimensional design space that has been partially explored. As with any science worth its salt, artificial intelligence has a coherent, formal theory and a rambunctious experimental wing. The book balances theory and experiment, showing how to link them intimately together. It develops the science of AI together with its engineering applications.
