At first, the two don’t seem like the most likely of partners, but Artificial Intelligence is currently being used to take emergency service calls in Denmark, helping to identify if Cardiac Arrest is present in the caller.
The virtual assistant is named Corti and is located in Copenhagen. As with any other ‘real life’ assistant, the AI deals with the emergency at hand, but with the use of voice recognition and machine learning rather than usual human conversation, to determine if signs of a heart attack are present.
Check out the video, uploaded to Youtube by Corti Chief Executive Andreas Cleve, showing Corti logging a demo conversation and how signals and trigger words about the state of the patient are used to offer appropriate recommendations on how critical the particular situation is.
For now, Corti is only being trialled in Denmark, but with such promising results so far it is believed that the technology will be introduced in the US in the near future.
According to the The Irish News, “AI as a monitoring tool for both spoken and written language is far from a new idea – it’s been behind the technology of predictive text for years, and is now used by many social networks to find and remove inappropriate content online.”
There is no doubt that AI is becoming a huge part of our day-to-day life, but now it might even save your life!
