Google AI tool to decode doctors hand written prescriptions

New Delhi : To overcome the problem of reading and identifying medicines mentioned in the written prescriptions, American technology giant Google announced an artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) model that can identify and highlight medicines within difficult-to-read handwritten prescriptions.

This will act as an assistive technology for digitizing handwritten medical documents by augmenting the humans in the loop such as pharmacists, however no decision will be made solely based on the output provided by this technology.

The AI tool will be created in Google Lens that can decode badly written medical notes. The company showcased the feature during its ‘AI for India’ event. “Much work still remains to be done before this system is ready for the real world,” it added.
