An emerging company is planning to use a natural language processing approach in combination with blockchain technology to better share information and insights derived from medical data.
The approach will be tested by doc.ai, which announced the initiative and will work with Deloitte Life Sciences and Healthcare to test its Robo-Hematology solution, which it debuted last month. It will be doc.ai’s first test of its approach with a customer.
The company says it offers an advanced natural language processing technology platform, which uses blockchain technology to timestamp datasets and decentralize artificial intelligence. The technology solution was created by developers at Stanford and Cambridge universities.

FOR SILICON VALLEY, the headline was sweet nectar: Google DeepMind, the world’s hottest artificial intelligence lab, embraces the blockchain, the endlessly fascinating idea at the heart of the bitcoin digital currency.
But the buzzwords bely the reality. The lab’s re-imagining of the blockchain has very little to do with AI—or the blockchain, for that matter. If you want AI crossed with the blockchain, try wrapping your head around Numerai, the world’s strangest hedge fund. To DeepMind’s credit, its new project depends less on trendy ideas than an apparent desire to solve a real problem in the real world—one that involves the most private and personal information.
DeepMind is building an auditing system for healthcare data. That may not sound sexy, but it matters. As more and more medical data goes digital, the system would ensure that as a hospital shares patient records, they stay private, accurate, and tamper-free.

Nah, trust us, there is something to this
Google-stablemate DeepMind is creating a blockchain-like system to show how sensitive medical data passing through its processors will be used, allowing healthcare professionals to check if data has been tampered with.
Its healthcare arm, DeepMind Health, is working to improve medical diagnoses with machine learning tools. Large amounts of confidential data are required to develop these tools – something DeepMind hasn’t always been trusted to handle.
