Microsoft today launched a new AI for Health program dedicated to improving the health of people and communities around the world. In the first five years of the project, Microsoft will invest $40 million in nonprofits, researchers and institutions in the health sector. In underdeveloped countries, technology plays an important role in promoting health research and improving health care.
The main elements of the project include
Seek discovery: Accelerate medical research to promote disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Global Health Insights: Improving our understanding of health and longevity to prevent global health crises.
Health equity: reducing health inequalities and improving health services for underserved populations.
Research capabilities: Support basic research capabilities, including data collaboration and differential privacy.
John Kahan, a Microsoft spokesman, said: “The AI for Health program will work in a collaborative manner, leveraging our existing excellent AI tools and technical expertise to further seek medical discovery, insight into global health, and improve health equity for underserved people.” “
