It is the talk of the town. Microsoft has acquired Nuance, a conversational AI and voice recognition specialist. Nuance is best known for its deep learning voice transcription service, which is very popular in the healthcare sector. Its conversational AI tool is freeing physicians from note-taking and allowing better patient-physician interactions in person or in the telemedicine appointments that have taken off during the pandemic.
Nuance's programme "has completely redefined clinical documentation by capturing and contextualising every word of the physician/patient encounter and automatically documenting it," said Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella during the deal announcement.
