Artificial intelligence is poised to radically change the way you and your physician assess your health status, but perhaps not in the way you imagined. The temperature patterns present in the surface of your skin can reveal the presence of and anatomical location of illness, injury, and infection. Historically, temperature assessment has been conducted using a single-point temperature from the forehead. As with any science, a single data point is often limited in its ability to inform. With rare exception, we find that there is greater insight when we examine a comprehensive set of data, the relationship of the data points, and the changes expressed in the data over time. Perhaps not at your next doctor’s visit, but not too long thereafter, your physician will seek to understand the temperature patterns operating across your body as a more comprehensive indicator of health status. AI will make possible richer insights and revelations into health status by equipping physicians and clinicians with both a real-time and longitudinal lens into the vast temperature landscape operating across the body.
