Bridging the Patient-Physician Gap with ML and Expert Systems w/ Xavier Amatriain

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by return guest Xavier Amatriain, Co-founder and CTO of Curai.

With the goal of providing the world’s best primary care to patients via their smartphone, Xavier turned to machine learning and AI to bring down costs and make Curai accessible and scaleable. In our conversation, we touch on the shortcomings of traditional primary care, and how Curai fills that role, and some of the unique challenges his team faces in applying this use case in the healthcare space. We also discuss the use of expert systems, how they develop and train these systems with synthetic data through noise injection, and how NLP projects like BERT, Transformer, and GPT-2 fit into what Curai is building.
