Dr Arnaud Wilmet, Chief Medical Information Officer at Nuance, a leading developer in voice recognition and conversational artificial intelligence technologies, recently acquired by Microsoft, provides his view to future employment of voice tech in healthcare. In the interview to Hospitalia, he says:
“Tomorrow, the voice will be, in my opinion, the gateway to digital health, whether it is conversational AI or virtual medical assistants. We already see it with the Metaverse and immersive technologies, which de facto integrate it. We are therefore only at the beginning, even if the sequence of events is already being written in the United States, where Nuance has launched so-called ambient clinical intelligence systems for a little over a year. The technology here blends completely into the medical application environment for the benefit of the singular colloquium, which makes it possible to return to the fundamentals of medicine. The future prospects are therefore exciting, and Nuance and Microsoft are in a good position to support healthcare professionals in the digital revolution in healthcare”.
