At Kurzweil AI, we are developing a prototype system that uses automatic speech recognition and knowledge bases of clinical information to produce structured medical reports. During this nearly two-year effort, we have completed several increasingly realistic and useful prototypes. The prototype system encompasses the system's major elements: a user speaks to the system, which produces structured clinical reports and communicates with a database of patient records. A team of knowledge engineers is constructing a primary-care knowledge base for deployment in a clinical setting. We are considering how to commercialize the system and extend it to other clinical domains.
