Testing a user interface is a challenging task in programming. However, new tools have emerged to make this better feasible. Using the setup of an web app using the SAFE template, canopy is a testing library that enables UI testing in the browser.

The next logical step is to look at the topic of artificial intelligence in medicine.
However, in clinical practice there are more immediate and practical needs to have support for simpel calculation and lookup actions.

I am using the SAFE template to setup my apps. This will install a full stack framework with F# as the back-end and front-end language.
To see the setup instructions go to the SAFE website. Typically, I use the install with the following directives:
The things I will be doing this week
