We're getting closer to that Star Trek medical tricorder concept.
First prize in the Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize was awarded to Final Frontier Medical Devices, a team in Pennsylvania. The team, led by brothers Dr. Basil Harris, an emergency medicine physician, and George Harris, a network engineer, created an artificial intelligence engine called DxtER that learns to diagnose medical conditions via data from emergency medicine and analyzing patients.
DxtER operates at the intersection of a few key trends such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. The concept of a medical tricorder is also becoming more possible as use cases for IoT -- health, transportation, smart home, smart city, and other areas -- blend together.
