How New Technologies Could Transform Africa’s HealthCare System
Across industrial sectors, from healthcare to energy, from construction to retail, engineers are creating new technologies with potentially disruptive implications for the current architectural order of the global economy. One of the technologies, an “AI doctor”, shows great promise for the future of health care in Africa.
An AI-powered computing system anchored on blockchain that can diagnose infectious diseases, such as malaria, typhoid fever, and tuberculosis, within seconds. The platform is engineered to serve the invisible demographic of migrants, ethnic minorities, and those unregistered within traditional health care systems. By bringing AI and blockchain together, CareAi uses an anonymously distributed health care architecture to deliver health services to patients anonymously.
