On May 22, 2023, Google announced the launch of its AI for Health program aimed at startups. The main goal of the program is to provide secure AI technologies to partners that can help healthcare professionals conduct research and improve healthcare. The Google AI for Health initiative is part of the company’s broader efforts to advance healthcare research and medical AI.
Google Health is currently building and testing artificial intelligence models to help address the global shortage of doctors and limited access to modern diagnostic tools in some parts of the world. The main focus of the company is on creating new tools using machine learning. They should increase the availability and accuracy of medical services worldwide.
According to Google, the system learns to “extract medical knowledge, accurately answer medical questions, and justify conclusions.” In addition, the company is partnering with healthcare organizations around the world to conduct research to improve healthcare.
The company is implementing artificial intelligence tools to offer high quality and affordable medical diagnostics worldwide. Existing systems are in operation in Taiwan to help diagnose breast cancer, and in Kenya for expectant mothers.
