Google’s Med-PaLM 2 AI: Transforming Healthcare Visits with Unmatched Accuracy

Your next doctor visit could involve Google‘s medical AI, Med-PaLM.

Google’s Med-PaLM 2, an AI tool designed to field medical inquiries, has been under trial at Mayo Clinic since April.

Med-PaLM 2, a variant of Google’s own language model PaLM 2, promises a revolutionary approach to healthcare, especially in areas with limited doctor access.

Trained on expert medical demonstrations, Med-PaLM 2 strives to outperform generalized LLMs like Bard, Bing, and ChatGPT in healthcare conversations.

Med-PaLM 2 harnesses the power of Google’s LLMs, aligned to the medical domain to more accurately and safely answer medical questions. As a result, Med-PaLM 2 was the first LLM to perform at an “expert” test-taker level performance on the MedQA dataset of US Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE)-style questions, reaching 85%+ accuracy, and it was the first AI system to reach a passing score on the MedMCQA dataset comprising Indian AIIMS and NEET medical examination questions, scoring 72.3%.

Med-PaLM 2 has shown similar competencies as actual doctors in providing reasoning and consensus-supported answers, despite occasional accuracy issues.

Customers testing Med-PaLM 2 maintain complete control over their data, which is encrypted and inaccessible to Google.

Google believes this AI can immensely benefit healthcare by about 10x.
