No one ever discusses how expensive AI programs are to run. Did you know that AI enterprises need to spend on average 30% of their funding in computing power equipment? For example, think about how much it would take to develop a Siri-like smart speaking device, you’ll need all types of algorithms that will need to be integrated with high-quality data and go through countless pieces of training in order to create the model of your AI product and most importantly, they need TONS on computing power.
We sit on tons and tons of healthcare data around illnesses, treatments (which drugs work best), cancer early detections, drug costs, etc. BUT why isn’t the industry creating more AI platforms to spot and cure diseases easier by linking all data sets? The Cost.
Today, I chat with Dr. Wang, who has been in the AI space for over 20 years and now works at a blockchain company trying to unite the healthcare industry and run more AI programs. The company is called DeepBrain Chain, and they’re leasing server spaces at major tech companies via smart contacts, which allows companies to run AI programs at a 70% discount.
With Blockchain, companies can track where their data is going who it is being used by and charge a fee create ongoing revenue. Between solving the data sharing issue and the high cost of AI computing, Blockchain will play a significant role in the future of healthcare.
