Microsoft Introduces

Microsoft launches a new AI for Health initiative under its Microsoft’s AI for Good program. The $40 million programs will focus on direct research in the medical AI field, global health studies, and improving access.

AI for Health will focus on four key areas: generating new insights around mortality and longevity, speed up medical research in terms of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, and improve health equity by expanding access to care for underserved populations. 

Microsoft aims to use insights derived from AI technologies and techniques to search for cures for diseases that plague humanity. The initiative will be headed by Microsoft’s Chief Data Analytics Officer, John Kahan.
