Google is beefing its healthcare-focused Brain research team to build the "next gen clinical visit experience," according to internal job postings. The team already has a study with Stanford Medicine that aims to use artificial intelligence and voice recognition to automatically generate electronic health records. Google GOOGL is beefing up an early-stage research project called Medical Digital Assist as it explores ways to use artificial intelligence to improve visits to the doctor's office.
