Google Health announced a slew of new features that will help in assisting doctors in easily obtaining AI-based precise results at its second annual ‘Check Up’ online event that was held on Thursday, March 24. The company intends to incorporate advanced search features as well as organise data in more useful ways. The most significant news from the event is in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). According to Google’s latest research findings, a smartphone’s built-in microphone may be used to listen to heartbeats when put over the chest. Google says it’s also looking at the prospect of using machine learning to diagnose diabetes and non-diabetic problems using a smartphone camera.
The first study expands on Google‘s prior research, which focused on recognising cardiovascular risk factors including elevated blood sugar and cholesterol levels, as well as on diabetic eye diseases utilising clinical pictures of the inside of the eye. Now, Google says it’s looking at the prospect of utilising machine learning to diagnose diabetes and non-diabetic problems using a smartphone camera.
“Our latest research investigates whether a smartphone can detect heartbeats and murmurs. We’re currently in the early stages of clinical study testing, but we hope that our work can empower people to use the smartphone as an additional tool for accessible health evaluation,” Google said in a blog post.
Google’s blog also mentions the potential to assess heart rate and breathing rate via the phone’s camera. This feature is currently accessible on over 100 Android smartphone variants as well as iOS devices.
In Brazil, India, and Japan, the video streaming platform YouTube will also introduce features to improve health-related searches and videos.
