Artificial intelligence: in the health care of people

health care of people

We often see robots and artificial intelligence systems as intruders that can steal jobs or make decisions against humans. However, the truth is that these devices are already contributing to improve the lives of people. For example, they have proven effective in support tasks for people with disabilities, elderly or rehabilitation of patients with injuries or chronic diseases. It is the most ‘human’ side of artificial intelligence. The unthinkable is already in our days. Series and films that were milestones on predictions of the future are now fulfilled; from intelligent robots, home automation, conferences with holograms and now health care as the last one entering the bet of Artificial Intelligence in our days.

Imagination and creativity have come together to improve people’s quality of life. For example, Doppler Labs has created hearing aids that improve hearing and eliminate noise that we do not want to hear. In the future, there will be some new efforts to enhance the ability of processing and remembering information. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is now developing such implantable devices to help them recover memory. While it is true that artificial intelligence systems are capable of handling millions of data on a disease and, knowing all the characteristics of a specific patient today can issue conclusions and recommendations for the treatment.

Artificial intelligence also begins to be used in the area of ​​oncological diseases. Given this, we share a case: A team of researchers from the Imperial College of London has created a really unusual prototype. It is a robotic butt with an internal anatomy exactly like a real one. This invention could help you prevent prostate cancer. The project already has financing to create a commercial version.

The next trend is social robotics technology where they will use artificial intelligence to understand people and respond appropriately. These ideas of simple “robots” have existed for many years.

Such is the case of Paro (in Japan) or Nuka (in Spain); this is a robot seal of Japanese origin, which has been developing since 1993. It seeks to apply animal interaction techniques with different groups of people (elderly, disabled, hospitalized children with symptoms of dementia) in day centers, residences and hospitals.

And if that were not enough, the impact on health will also be dramatic. We’ve heard a lot about the connected healthcare products that are creating a digital health revolution and putting healthcare in the hands of consumers. Two examples are: Digital CellScope Otoscope and AliveCor with Kardia and they are in corporation. CellScope adds sensors to a smartphone so that consumers can control ear infections or atrial fibrillation and Kardia on the other hand controls the heart rate from any device providing in real time the result of analysis.

How the Artificial Intelligence prevents the Grey Tsunami

So far most elderly people often spend their time waiting for diagnosis and are pushed to the wrong place. Diagnosis of human doctors has a fairly large probability of error and our state’s system aggravates this condition. Many trivial diagnoses are brought to the surface, forcing countries to pay too much for them. On the other hand, many serious diagnoses are ignored because of a lack of focus on the patient’s condition (personally). This problem is usually caused by ignorance and lack of routine control in patients and severely, this happens globally.

Japan is the most advanced and most serious country in handling this global problem. This can be understood in the Japanese context as one of the countries with an inverted pyramid-like population picture. If this problem is not resolved, billions of yen will be wasted each year on various inefficiencies in medical treatment for tens of millions of seniors. The Japanese government needs to switch to a system where every elderly person can obtain a comfortable care environment and thorough supervision (also diagnosis) to prevent worsening of the patient’s condition and also diagnosis errors.

From the above facts it can be concluded that an artificial intelligence-based control system is absolutely necessary to monitor and diagnose serious health problems in the elderly. An artificial intelligence-based control system can minimize errors made by humans in estimating the elderly’s health condition. Not only that, this system can also reduce the cost as this will miss the serious health problems to focus on the serious ones. By using an artificial intelligence-based system that is stored and run on the cloud, every elderly person can access health information without depending on any hard device. They can access anytime and anywhere .

The big business

Fortunately, in our country there have been a number of companies that have specifically developed software or applications used to monitor the health condition of seniors. Such applications will work quickly to diagnose the possibilities for someone to get serious health problems. That way, pre-emptive action can be done and in the medical world, prevention means saving lives and thousands of dollars.

iDeskMD is one of the best companies. The company focuses on health control applications specifically aimed at seniors. This application will help individuals to immediately ask for medical help appropriately and in a timely manner. By providing special links that can be accessed by anyone, the company is ready to expand globally.

With iDeskMD, every elderly person can get the opportunity for continuous medical supervision. But this company is also not limited to seniors because iDeskMD also opens the door for every investor who dares to try out the unlimited elderly market. With the phenomenon of increasing life expectancy in the United States and many European countries, what this company has to offer is very relevant. For everyone interested in doing business with iDeskMD, visiting fundable.com/ideskmd is the first step.

Behind every problem there are a million opportunities and this also applies to what is called the Gray Tsunami. For most politicians, this elderly problem is quite worrying but for medical practitioners and business people, this problem can be overcome and can also be a fantastic source of income.
