Generalist Medical AI with Pranav Rajpurkar

Vijay Pande, Kris Tatiossian, and Olivia Webb

Posted December 12, 2023

Pranav Rajpurkar, PhD, joins Vijay Pande, founding partner of a16z Bio + Health.

As Pranav notes in the episode, the research and development process in medical AI development so far has been siloed by specialty, but generalist medical AI exists outside those siloes. If generalist medical AI is successful, it could act as a dynamic support system to a physician, almost like a medical resident.
