Bill Gates talks to Google about AI in healthcare

Former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates visited Google researchers March 18 to share ideas about using artificial intelligence in healthcare, according to CNBC.

Specifically, Mr. Gates talked about using AI and machine learning for predictive medicine when analyzing ultrasounds. With Google, Mr. Gates is working to use AI to diagnose high-risk pregnancies.

“We’re doing a lot of work with analyzing ultrasounds, and we can do things like sex-blind the output, because we’re not having anybody actually see the image,” Mr. Gates said, according to CNBC. “We can tell you what’s going on without revealing the gender, which is, of course –– when you do that, it drives gendercide.”

Although Microsoft and Google are major competitors, Mr. Gates’ visit demonstrates his interest in the technology trumps his rivalries. Mr. Gates also talked about AI in weapons systems and autonomous vehicles.
