Artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a new tool to help save lives, treat diseases, and conduct research. The first artificial intelligence research in the field of nephrology came from Egypt, Africa, and it was directed to predict and adjust the quality of hemodialysis sessions for patients even before they started the session, which saved time and money. Similarly, the application of AI in the field of transplantation comparing the accuracy of AI with multivariate statistics in the prediction of graft survival was done in Egypt. With advances in digital networking and the global spread of the internet, applications of AI have been expanded and now involve the field of research. AI can now start a research project, write a review article, and even plan a research design.
