Sleep medicine is a specialty historically rooted in the rapid adoption of technological advancements. Recently, there has been an acceleration in the development of newer technologies related to sleep health. While most of these technologies are meant for consumer use, a few have been found robust enough for clinical applications. The artificial intelligence revolution and the COVID-19 pandemic have been two significant drivers for technological innovation that can simplify sleep disorders management and permit remote healthcare delivery. This review discusses the issues related to artificial intelligence, newer consumer and clinical sleep technologies, and their applications in sleep medicine.
