Artificial intelligence supports various technologies to think and behave similarly to humans. It does this by analysing large amounts of digital data to generate new insights and interact with humans. Technologies based on artificial intelligence are now used by nurses in clinical settings to support care and can help them understand and address complex health issues. However, artificial intelligence has limitations and risks, such as biased outputs and a lack of transparency in how some algorithms work, which could impact clinical accountability and patient safety. This article discusses the barriers and facilitators of artificial intelligence, and offers some recommendations for its use in nursing.
