Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly progressing technology with increasing potential. This article aims to assess whether an AI programme is able to interpret questions from the MRCPCH, and whether it has the knowledge of a paediatrician. Questions from the MRCPCH were inputted into an AI programme and compared to answers given by the author, a paediatric trainee. Results showed an excellent understanding of paediatric medicine with potential for this to be utilised to aid clinicians in the future.
