IBM Watson Wants To Be Your Doctor

By: 

Although the medical field has made many strides, at the end of the day, doctors are also prone to human mistakes. As a way to prevent human error, IBM Watson‘s cognitive technology is being developed to read and scan a patient’s medical images. This way, Watson has the ability to direct the attention of a doctor.

Watson will also have the ability to pull up a patient’s past medical history to diagnose a condition and come up with a faster treatment plan. For example, if a patient has a tumor, Watson will be able to identify it then utilize a patient’s past medical history to come up with a plan.

IBM is just one of the many companies trying to merge data and technology to assist the field of healthcare. Doctors may be able to do more with another set of eyes.
