Medical research made understandable with AI (ep. 601)
On today’s episode we chat with two of the leaders at Sorcero: CEO Dipanwita Das and CTO Hellmut. Sorcero uses AI and large language models to make medical texts more discoverable and readable, helping knowledge to more easily spread, increasing the chances doctors and patients will find the solutions they need.
Sorcero uses a mix of natural language processing, generative AI, and even more old school symbolic AI, where they craft their own ontologies, to try and ingest that river of new medical data and make it easier to search and comprehend.
