As a programmer it can be hard not to see AI as just a tool for generating more profit. It seems to be the main reason for a company using it and that's not entirely a bad reason.

Then in the news not a day goes by without people worrying about true AI bringing on the end of the world.

So its nice to see for once AI being used as a true form of good. German scientists have teamed up with IBM to use their AI solution Watson to help cure some of the worlds most rare or diagnosed diseases.
