Jan Willem Plaisier (Amsterdam UMC): Daily Dose, your scientific Tinder application
As doctors, we want to deliver the best possible care to our patients. That’s why we need to stay up to date with scientific literature. However, each day thousands of articles are published in medical journals. Finding the meaningful ones turns out to be a hard job.
That’s why we created Daily Dose. Daily Dose is both artificial intelligence and a social platform. Usingsmart algorithms, it helps doctors select the most promising articles in their fields of interest and share them with their colleagues.
