Note: This episode was recorded as part of the Bio Eats World podcast, now known as Raising Health.

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

In this episode, Pranav and Vijay discuss a future with generalist medical AI. This is the idea of a medical AI that isn’t narrowly tailored to one specific task. 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.
