Artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a powerful and exciting new technology poised to impact many aspects of health care. In endoscopy, AI is now being used to detect and characterize benign and malignant GI lesions and assess malignant lesion depth of invasion. It will undoubtedly also find use in capsule endoscopy and inflammatory bowel disease. Herein, we provide the general endoscopist with a brief overview of AI and its emerging uses in our field. We also touch on the challenges of incorporating AI into clinical practice, such as workflow integration, data storage, and data privacy.
