Google's DeepMind to enter health sector with clinician-led tech

Google's artificial intelligence group, DeepMind, is entering the healthcare sector with a focus on clinician-led technology.

DeepMind Health will start its efforts in the United Kingdom, working with the National Health Service to "support clinicians by providing the technical expertise needed to build and scale technologies" to improve care, according to an announcement. 

DeepMind already has been working with the Royal Free Hospital London to create an app, Streams, which will help providers detect kidney injury. Announcement
