CORRELATION OF ADVANCEMENTS IN COMPUTING WITH IMPROVED MEDICAL TECH

  • Nightingale, a data storage and processing project by Google Cloud and Ascension. The system is used to suggest treatment plans, recommend replacement or removal of a doctor from the patient’s health-care team, and administer policies on narcotics.
  • Abtrace, another such example, processes healthcare data through an augmented decision-making tool, comparing it to billions of data points and presenting a recommendation for which, if any, antibiotics should be prescribed.
  • The Pexxi Company is developing an online platform that enables women to take control of their hormonal health by understanding each women’s unique hormonal profile via health assessments and at-home hormone / DNA testing. They have created an algorithm that recommends prescriptions and treatments, track symptoms, and provides ongoing monitoring and support.
  • Genpact UK has been paid a tender of £1.5m to develop an AI tool to sift through the high volume of reports of adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Microsoft announced AI for Health, a five-year, $40 million program that aims to help healthcare organizations leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to boost the health of patients and populations worldwide. Through AI for Health, they will support specific non-profits and academic collaboration with Microsoft’s leading data scientists, access to best-in-class AI tools and cloud computing, and select cash grants.
