wikiMany of the pivotal technologies utilized by the public today have their roots in military projects. The internet’s first successful message transfer was due to a U.S. Department of Defense-awarded contract in 1969 for the development of the “ARPANET project.” Global Positioning System (GPS) technology utilized in smartphones today was put in place and created in the 1970s for accurate military positioning, coordination, and tracking.
There are few companies claiming to offer artificial intelligence solutions to orthopedics companies. We found that these solutions are intended to help orthopedics companies with at least one of the following business problems:
Sensors and mobile devices are in many ways working with AI software for business intelligence purposes in a few industries, including insurance and oil and gas. In the healthcare space, mobile devices and wearables allow patients to receive information on possible diagnoses for their symptoms and to monitor metrics such as their heart rate.

There are several companies claiming to offer AI-based medical transcription software, specifically speech recognition software, to hospitals and healthcare companies. We found that these solutions are intended to help hospitals and healthcare companies with medical transcription in different forms, transcribing speech into text in order to fill out and update patient medical records in electronic health record (EHR) and electronic medical record (EMR) databases.
Machine Learning for Medical Transcription - Insights Up Front
We can’t seem to find evidence that the prominent companies offering speech recognition software for medical transcription have what we would expect in terms of talent at their company, except for Nuance Communications. It isn’t clear how exactly their solutions could work without natural language processing, a kind of artificial intelligence. Nuance employs many data scientists with PhDs and Master’s degrees in computer science and hard sciences like physics. This is generally what we look for when it comes to vetting a company on their claims to leveraging artificial intelligence and cutting through the marketing hype we so often see on AI vendor websites.
