This is a great story and highlights the importance AI can play in the medical field. Indeed, as noted in our AI Report 2022, the technology sector having the highest number of AI patents published over the last 21 years is the Life & Medical Science sector, at 15% of all AI applications filed.
Congratulations Erin Smith!
