Special Issue Introduction

Artificial intelligence (AI) is coming to medicine in a big wave. From making the diagnosis of various medical conditions, following the latest advancements in scientific literature, and suggesting appropriate therapies, to predicting the prognosis and outcome of diseases and conditions, AI is offering unprecedented possibilities to improve care for patients. Gastroenterology is a field in which AI could make a significant impact. This is partly because the diagnosis of gastrointestinal conditions relies a lot on image-based investigations and procedures (endoscopy and radiology). AI-assisted image analysis can make an accurate assessment and provide more information than conventional analysis. AI integration of genomic, epigenetic, and metagenomic data may offer new classifications of gastrointestinal cancers and suggest optimal personalized treatments. In managing relapsing and remitting diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and peptic ulcer bleeding, the convoluted neural networks may formulate models to predict disease outcomes, enhancing treatment efficacy. AI and surgical robots can also assist surgeons in conducting gastrointestinal operations. While the advancement and new opportunities are exciting, the responsibility and liability issues of AI-assisted diagnosis and management need many deliberations.  In this special issue, we want to discuss the following topics but not limited to: 
1. Intraoperative Imaging & Gastrointestinal Surgery;
2. Robot-Assisted Gastrointestinal Surgery;
3. Decision Support Systems & Gastrointestinal Surgery;
4. Artificial Intelligence & Endoscopy;
5. Artificial Intelligence & Multidisciplinary Imaging Diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Diseases;
