See How Artificial Intelligence Can Improve Medical Diagnosis And Healthcare
A digital health company from the UK wants to change the way a patient interacts with a doctor through the creation of an artificial intellignce (AI) doctor in the form of a AI chatbot.
Babylon Health raised close to $60 million in April 2017 to diagnose illnesses with an AI chatbot on your smartphone. Around the same time, Berlin and London based start up Ada, announced its push into the AI chat bot space.
“The news that Babylon Health has raised near £50M to build an ‘AI doctor’ is a promising development for the health industry; trials are currently ongoing in London, where Babylon’s tech is being used as an alternative to the non-emergency 111 number,” said Dr. Joseph Reger, CTO, Fujitsu EMEIA.
