Microsoft will use machine-learning to predict which dental plans a patient will have to make when they first start their life in the United States, a new Microsoft report says.
The study says Microsoft has been testing the capabilities of artificial intelligence to help doctors understand patients’ dental needs in a variety of ways, including providing a personalized medical care package tailored to the needs of each individual patient.
Microsoft said it’s been testing artificial intelligence (AI) to predict patients’ needs for dental care.
It says its AI system, called Microsoft Medicine, can predict which patients will require dental care based on the data from its patient registry and other medical data, and can help predict which health care providers a patient is likely to need to see them.
The report says Microsoft Medicine can also provide information on what patients’ medical needs are, and how that needs to be met.
It also says Microsoft’s AI system can provide “a detailed picture of a patient from a variety, and unique, vantage points, including their teeth, gums, gingivitis, and a variety other factors.”
The company’s researchers say Microsoft Medicine has been used by doctors to help determine which patients might benefit from a comprehensive dental plan, and to help predict patients who might need treatment for gingival inflammation, which is caused by a plaque buildup in the mouth and can make the mouth less usable.
The new Microsoft HealthCare study is based on a 2015 study that showed AI can predict patients with a range of conditions, from asthma to diabetes.
The researchers said Microsoft has seen an uptick in the use of AI in health care as more people use AI to help with diagnosis, care and monitoring.
In the past year, AI has been incorporated into the use and management of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, for example.
Microsoft has been working to bring the benefits of AI to the healthcare industry, including using AI to create personalized care packages tailored to individual patients’ conditions, the company said.
The company said it is exploring the use AI in more than 100 industries, including healthcare, financial services, education, technology and transportation.
