Recent advancement in technology such as Machine Learning (ML), Artificial intelligence(AI), Robotics, internet of things (IOT), Block Chain technologies, Big Data analytics, Cloud computing  Natural Language Processing, Mobile Applications is making a huge impact on the day to day lives of human beings. These technologies started helping us to save resources, time and cost and at the same time increase the accuracy and efficiency. Biomedical domain also started embracing these new technologies in the areas of diagnosis, surgery and therapeutics. These technologies also have applications in the areas of pattern recognition and expert systems. The paper provides an overview of recent advancement in technologies and its impact on the biomedical domain
