Google is working on an updated version of its medical A.I. that can answer health questions. Google on Tuesday announced a series of new health initiatives and partnerships at its annual event called “The Check Up. The business talked about new collaborations to advance AI-assisted ultrasounds, cancer treatment, and tuberculosis screenings during the gathering. But the most recent iteration of its Med-PaLM large language model for healthcare received special attention.
Google first introduced Med-PaLM late last year. It’s designed to provide high-quality responses to medical questions. Med-PaLM was the first AI system to successfully receive a passing score. According to the manufacturer, Med-PaLM 2, the technology’s second iteration, reliably answered medical exam questions at a “expert” level.
According to Dr. Alan Karthikesalingam, research lead at Google Health, the business also compares Med-PaLM’s responses to those of actual medical professionals.
AI Chat Is Coming to Google Docs, Gmail
Google introduced new capabilities on Tuesday, Mar. 14, that leverage the company’s A.I technology to generate text in Gmail and Docs. This marks a significant expansion of the company’s efforts in generative AI.
mail and other Google productivity apps are part of the Workspace where AI technologies are being tested and made available to select users.
Under Google’s experiment, users may compose an email by clicking the compose button and then typing “draft an email to the team.” A three-paragraph thank-you letter will be generated, which may then be customized by the user via modifications and bulleted list conversion. If the user is unsatisfied with the results, they may request that the app try again.
Workspace has more than 3 billion users, as per Google. Customers and businesses alike may be members of a subscription service by paying a fee.
Later this year, Google wants to roll out more A.I capabilities for Workspace, such as formula creation in Sheets, automatically created graphics in Slides, and note-taking in Meet.
