Getting Support for New Ways of Delivering Healthcare
Digital and machine learning technologies have positively impacted so many industries, such as Banking (e.g. fraud detection), Advertising, Retail (with recommendations and personalization) and Mapping, so why is healthcare lagging behind? From enabling research on health data to integrating with outdated proprietary hospital systems, from gaining clinician support to patient trust, the barriers to entry are high for innovators to offer their services. In this talk, I explore the challenges facing technology companies seeking to make a positive impact in healthcare and how DeepMind is looking to address these challenges in addition to some of our recent initiatives in the field.
