To Make a Real Difference in Health Care, AI Will Need to Learn Like We Do

There’s no question that AI is poised to irrevocably change how we look to prevent and treat illness. Doctors will cede documentation to AI scribes; primary care providers will lean on chatbots for triage; near-endless libraries of predicted protein structures will supercharge drug development. However, to truly transform these fields, we should invest in creating an ecosystem of models—say, “specialist” AIs—that learn like our best physicians and drug developers do today.

 To Make a Real Difference in Health Care, AI Will Need to Learn Like We Do

For those of us who have long been bullish on AI’s potential to transform society, especially in key areas such as health and medicine, recent months have felt very much like science fiction has come to life.

3 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Change Healthcare

For most medical professionals, artificial intelligence (AI) will be an accelerant and enabler, not a threat.


Providing the world's best healthcare to everyone. We are harnessing AI/ML to build products that empower both providers and patients.

Story Health

Our mission is to empower clinicians to deliver their best care to every patient


We joined forces with Google in order to turbo-charge our mission. The algorithms we build are capable of learning for themselves directly from raw experience or data, and are general in that they can perform well across a wide variety of tasks straight out of the box.


BabyX is an interactive animated virtual infant prototype. BabyX is a computer generated psychobiological simulation under development in the Laboratory of Animate Technologies and is an experimental vehicle incorporating computational models of basic neural systems involved in interactive behaviour and learning.

Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence

Founded in 1979, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) (formerly the American Association for Artificial Intelligence) is a nonprofit scientific society devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines.

Auckland Bioengineering Institute

The Laboratory for Animate Technologies is creating ‘live’ computational models of the face and brain by combining Bioengineering, Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Computer Graphics Research. We are developing multidisciplinary technologies to create interactive autonomously animated systems which will define the next generation of human computer interaction and facial animation.

3 ways AI is already changing medicine

The health care system has been abysmal at doing the very basics of incorporating new technology into medical practice, like digitizing medical records. And Topol makes clear in the book that many of these promising technologies, like avatars for mental health or AI for colonoscopies, need to be further validated and refined in clinical studies...
