AI now able to diagnose heart failure over the telephone.
Corti, an AI start-up, has developed an algorithm that can spot imminent heart failure in people calling up emergency services. At the moment, the algorithm is just working on what the callers are saying. This involves the actual words, i.e., natural language processing. It has been trained on emergency call logs going back years. But there is no reason in principle why it could not analyse intonation and breathing patterns from the calls too. The team is also looking to add other medical conditions to the service such as strokes.
