Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to computer-based technologies that seek to replicate human intelligence by allowing software to make decisions and provide recommendations based on the analysis of large datasets. Present applications of AI in spine deformity surgery have focused on improving safety and efficacy by automating, standardizing, and facilitating data guided approaches. In this review, the authors focus on 3 types of AI technology: 1) Surgical classification, 2) individualized outcome prediction, and 3) surgical planning. It is anticipated that AI will become an essential part of the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative phases of adult spinal deformity surgery.
