Babylon health is taking the examination of their technology, same as Doctors have during their study and they are clearing the exams with flying colors.

As the AI is designed to continuously gather the data and learn more, it’ll secure more marks in every subsequent exam, said Babylon.

The team of the company as well tested the AI with 7 experience primary general healthcare professional with 100 different devises symptoms set. AI, developed by Babylon was 80% accurate, while the humans were in between the accuracy range of 64% — 94%.

The accuracy attained by technology reached to 98% when the team tested it with the diagnosis of the most common health condition in primary care, and in this, the humans attained the accuracy range from 52% — 99%.

These tests were executed in association with the Royal College of Physicians, Stanford University, and Yale University’s Yale-New Haven Healthcare system.
