Artificial intelligence (AI) has made steady in-roads into the healthcare scenario over the last decade. While widespread adoption into clinical practice remains elusive, the outreach of this discipline has progressed beyond the physician scientist, and different facets of this technology have been incorporated into the care of surgical patients. New AI applications are developing at rapid pace, and it is imperative that the general surgeon be aware of the broad utility of AI as applicable in his or her day-to-day practice, so that healthcare continues to remain up-to-date and evidence based. This review provides a broad account of the tip of the AI iceberg and highlights it potential for positively impacting surgical care.
