The Chinese AI has got a doctor’s licence


IFlyTek, a Chinese company in Shenzhen working on his artificial intelligence for four years. The program AI to better prepare for the exams in local medical school and have successfully passed all the tests. The results of the exam she was given a licensed doctor.

“We were able to do it before the IBM Watson! We have developed the system independently passed the necessary exams, becoming the world’s first AI, his skill level is not inferior to doctor-man,” boasted one of the members of the Board of Directors of the company iFlyTek.

And to be proud of really is it. AI iFlyTek Smart Doctor Assistant scored 456 points of the 360 needed, but the developers are not going to stop and report that their program is able to learn more complex things in medicine and in other fields. For example, in the law.

Meanwhile, iFlyTek Smart Doctor Assistant plan to apply in the area where it is already well proved to be — its going to detach assistant usual doctors, because AI will be able, for example, is much faster to analyze massive amounts of data on diseases collected from all over the country, process them and issue concrete results.

In fairness it should be noted that the performance test program has not been undertaken, and the performance iFlyTek and Watson have not yet been compared, but the program really fine job — can’t argue with that.
