At Google we’re committed to improving the lives of as many people as possible. One of the most important areas in which we’re striving to do that is health. Every day, people ask Google health-related questions, and we do our best to provide the most accurate and helpful information.
Beyond Search, emerging technologies present opportunities to elevate healthcare for everyone. Today we’re studying the use of artificial intelligence to assist in diagnosing cancer, predicting patient outcomes, preventing blindness, and much more. We’re exploring ways to improve patient care, including tools that are already being used by clinicians. And we’re partnering with doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to help improve the care patients receive.
These are just the first steps of an exciting journey that all of us at Google Health are passionate about taking. To learn more, here’s a conversation with Dr. David Feinberg, who is leading our efforts. In addition to all we’re doing across Google, you can read about the exciting work being done by our colleagues in Alphabet at Verily and Calico.
