Microsoft has partnered healthcare major Apollo Hospitals to create an artificial intelligence-focused network in cardiology.
The partnership between Microsoft and Apollo will work to develop and deploy new machine learning models to predict patient risk for heart disease and assist doctors on treatment plans. The AI Network for healthcare, previously known as Microsoft Intelligent Network for Eyecare (MINE), is a part of Microsoft Healthcare NExT aimed to accelerate healthcare innovation through artificial intelligence and cloud computing.
Initially aimed at tackling only visions problems, AI Network for healthcare will now collaborate with Apollo to develop and deploy new machine learning models to predict patient risk for heart disease and assists doctors on treatment plans.
Commenting on the development, Microsoft AI and Research Corporate Vice President Peter Lee said: "Our unique partnership with Apollo brings together our understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning areas and Apollo's experience and expertise in cardiology."
This collaboration with Microsoft's path-breaking technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will help better predict, prevent and manage heart disease in the country. Read full article here.
