The World Economic Forum annual meeting, held in Davos, Switzerland, emphasized the Fourth Industrial Revolution as one of the most cutting-edge innovative techniques to be seen in the forthcoming era. This has a greater impact on the future of production and the role of government, business and academia in all developing technologies and innovation where industries, communication and technologies meet. The fourth industrial revolution combines the physical, digital, and biological spaces and is changing the healthcare industry. The FCN-32 semantic segmentation was performed on the brain tumor images which produced better results for identifying the tumors as ground truths and predicted images was achieved. The best calculated loss = 0.0108 and accuracy = 0.9964 for the given tumor images was achieved. The earlier detecting and analysis of any disease can help diagnosing and treatment in better means through artificial intelligence techniques. The healthcare industry can serve better with faster and quality services to remote, rural and unreachable areas and thereafter reduces the cost of hospitalization.
