as informed in Forays by Google subsidiary DeepMind Health into the UK’s medical institutions have been characterized by two major themes.
With the science going swimmingly, DeepMind Health is focusing more than ever on reassuring UK citizens that their medical records are in safe hands.
The Audit technology is not yet in place, but would keep a publicly accessible record of every time DeepMind accesses hospital data, using technology related to the blockchain.
