For the uninitiated, Samsung Medical Center and Microsoft Korea have always been at the forefront with regards to technological developments in healthcare and medical devices market, considering the research investment by these two giants in healthcare artificial intelligence industry. The two companies, reportedly, have developed artificial intelligence models for disease-specific AI diagnosis and early detection of cancer disease.
The teaming up would integrate Microsoft’s massive cloud infrastructure with SMC’s big systematic data, which ultimately would enhance healthcare space with an optimized clinical data model. As per the reports, the joint project would remarkably improve the survival rates of cancer patients through deep learning algorithm and predictive modeling of sleep apnea outcomes.
Microsoft, under this agreement, would also provide a systematic education to SMC’s medical professionals, to enhance their AI utilization capacity. Allegedly, the education curriculum would include basic as well as advanced level courses to SMC’s medical fraternity, which comprise the largest number of gene researchers and data among the regional medical institutes.
