Diagnosing diseases just got a whole lot simpler. Meet SOPHiA, the AI that reads DNA in order to diagnose illnesses. From Swiss data company Sophia Genetics, this AI shows what the future of healthcare will look like. SOPHiA analyzes the genomic profiles of patients not just to diagnose, but also to better understand the patient’s health needs.
SOPHiA is also groundbreaking because it can help doctors in one part of the world diagnose patients in another. In the words of Sophia Genetics co-founder and CEO Jurgi Camblong,
“Since inception, our vision has been to develop innovative technological solutions to help patients, equally wherever they live. SOPHiA acts as a real disruptor by breaking down the information silos in healthcare, meaning that the information from a patient in London or Paris can for instance help better diagnose and treat a patient in Lagos or Rio.”
