Google says its AI is better at predicting death than hospitals

Google’s Medical Brain team is now training its AI to predict the death risk among hospital patients — and its early results show it has slightly higher accuracy than a hospital’s own warning system. The AI, once fed this data, made predictions about the likelihood of death, discharge, and readmission. In one major case study in the findings, Google applied its algorithm to a patient with metastatic breast cancer. In order to come to that number, the AI tallied 175,639 data points from the patient’s electronic medical records, including handwritten notes. This isn’t the first time Google’s AI has been applied to predictive healthcare.
