Robot doctor passes medical exam

London-based artificial intelligence (AI) company says its AI robot doctors can diagnose patients just as well as a human clinician.

Babylon Health has created software that can interpret symptoms and tell a person what might be wrong with them after answering a number of questions.

But general practitioners say while the program has some benefits, it will never replicate the level of care offered by humans.

“What we’re trying to do with Babylon is make healthcare accessible, affordable, put it in the hands of every human being on earth,” Babylon’s founder, Dr Ali Parsa.

He says the app isn’t intended to replace GPs but can be used to free-up already overworked doctors and also help improve waiting times for patients.
