All of us have occasionally felt concerned or confused when reading a doctor’s prescription. The new AI translation tool created by Google can now be used to solve the problem. At its annual “Google for India” conference in December, Google revealed that it is working with pharmacists to develop a model that will use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to translate difficult-to-read handwritten notes.
The Google AI translation tool is still in prototype mode and is not yet available to the general public. However, we can basically understand how it operates by looking at the demonstration shown at the conference.
The prescription can be photographed by the user or uploaded from their photo collection. The photograph will be processed after uploading, and the app will identify and highlight the medicines listed in the submitted prescription.
According to Manish Gupta, Research Director at Google Research India, “This will act as an assistive technology for digitizing handwritten medical documents by augmenting the humans in the loop, such as pharmacists. However, no decision will be made solely based on the output provided by this technology.”
Currently, it appears that much work still needs to be done to make AI produce more accurate results, but it has the potential to be a highly helpful tool that relieves patients and pharmacists of the burdens regarding deciphering doctors’ handwriting. Moreover, it will definitely help a lot to translate other types of difficult-to-read handwritings.
