Report: #NLProc in Digital Healthcare. From Legacy to Niche Apps

Report: #NLProc in Digital Healthcare. From Legacy to Niche Apps | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

The current market for natural language processing (NLP) technology in healthcare is nascent, dominated by a few legacy vendors that are focusing on front-end speech recognition (for computer-assisted physician documentation) and back-end coding (to optimize billing). While many vendors continue to advance NLP technology for more general use, there are a handful of niche solutions from highly specialized healthcare vendors pursuing additional opportunities to apply the technology. The research delves into a dozen such notable applications, including computer-assisted coding, speech recognition, and data mining.

2020 Olympics: Japan’s New Speech Translator for Hospitals  | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

At the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, a surge in visitors is expected, up from 28 million in 2017 to 40+ million. Some of them will inevitably fall ill or become injured and will seek medical treatment without speaking Japanese. Fujitsu has developed a hands-free, wearable speech translation device designed for use in hospital settings. A major challenge was to develop technology to detect speech and identify the speaker’s direction, based on the voice of the user, especially in noisy environments such as hospital reception areas and laboratories.

Medtech Researchers to Help @RowAnalytics Shape Its Semantic Search Solution

Medtech Researchers to Help @RowAnalytics Shape Its Semantic Search Solution | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

RowAnalytics (UK & DK) set out to solve the major problems with search engines. First, removing the requirement that the user knows all the “right” keywords and has the uncommon expertise to build this and/or “not that” Boolean style complex searches. Now, entire sentences or abstracts can be pasted or whole articles and/or patents together can be directly uploaded into the query field. The AI find engine constructs the query on behalf of the user and retrieves all the hits that match, as well as returns interesting hits that keyword searches miss. This is especially helpful when preparing a patent claim or new drug filing when much of the language is deliberately obfuscated – precisionlife SEARCH determines which other patent applications (or articles) are similar in concept.

LT-Innovate's insight:

Specialised in search for life sciences and medicine, this company seems to be expanding the range of accurate "big search"  by using large chunks of text as a semantic template for the search inout.

Doc.ai Launches Blockchain-based Conversational AI Platform for Health Consumers

Doc.ai Launches Blockchain-based Conversational AI Platform for Health Consumers | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

Palo Alto-based artificial intelligence startup Doc.ai has launched (US)  its blockchain-based conversational AI platform . Founded mid-last year by husband and wife team Walter and Sam De Brouwer, Doc.ai's technology allows healthcare organisations to offer their patients a mobile "robo-doctor" to discuss their health at any time of the day.

LT-Innovate's insight:

Conversational (NLU driven), secure (blockchain for P2P communication so that companies can't own  your personal data), and self-learning (so the user's medical profile becomes more "intelligent"). High medical technicity might raise communication problems with users.
