Big data is just the medicine for doc­tors to com­bat ill­ness

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - PAGE TWO -

Big data tech­nol­ogy is prov­ing use­ful for doc­tors in the di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment of pa­tients. Wat­son for On­col­ogy, de­vel­oped by IBM, is one such pro­gram that helps doc­tors iden­tify key in­for­ma­tion on cancer, and is be­ing used in 11 hos­pi­tals in China. Some Chi­nese hos­pi­tals and com­pa­nies have de­vel­oped their own tech­nolo­gies that di­ag­nose and treat pa­tients with the help of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. China Daily will ex­plore the lat­est de­vel­op­ment in the sec­tor with in-depth sto­ries.
