Microsoft to Detect Cardiac Diseases by using AI
Microsoft has announced its future plan to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to better detect cardiac diseases. The Redmond-based tech company will provide this technology to Apollo Hospitals, one of India’s largest hospital chains, to assist physicians in diagnosing heart problems. According to TechRadar, Microsoft’s new partnership with Apollo Hospitals seeks to reduce the burden of cardiac diseases by providing faster, more accurate and intuitive diagnosis. Initially, Microsoft’s AI will only be used in Apollo Hospitals. When speaking about the venture, however, a spokesperson for Apollo Hospitals explained that it will validate the technology so that it can be used to improve healthcare services for patients with heart disease and those at risk for heart disease throughout the world.
