It combines HealthSearchQA, a new dataset of medical questions, with six existing datasets covering professional medical exams, research, and consumer queries. The model was developed on PaLM (Pathways Learning Model), a 540 billion parameter large language model, and is intended for use by both medical professionals and non-professionals. The developers of MedPaLM are considering using blockchain technology to secure the data input and generated by the model. They hope that the tool will be successfully used in practice with real patients. Health Unchained Links Website Telegram Twitter Supercast Buy Ledger Hardware Wallet
