NLP mess

NLP is imperfect. By definition. It’s impossible to be always right. That’s why one of the fingerprints we are most proud about is our Evaluation Methodology.

It’s opensource, for anyone who wants to use it, here.

In the meantime, we continue to be surprised by the foolish things our system decides to say from time to time:

  • 2-year old babies with type 2 diabetes.
  • Patients with 8 different types of neoplasia.
  • Women with prostate cancer.
  • Patients with >15 knee surgeries or bone fractures.
  • Schrodinger smokers: patients that are both smokers and non-smokers (and even ex-smokers) at the same time.
  • Patients with supposed plenty of medical records… after their exitus.
  • Patients >120 years old.
  • Confusing CI, cardiopatía isquémica and coitus interruptus.
  • Escherechia Coli read as Dr. Coli.
  • Patients that changed gender… >50 times.
  • Kids with dementia.
  • Pregnant men.
  • A patient that supposedly passed away, a couple of days later had diarrhea, fever and then sadly passed away, again.

And more to come...

We send several weekly emails for you to start making friends with AI.

Scientific evidence generated through AI is going to be severely scrutinized. We show you how to comply with quality and robustness criteria. We don't mean generating evidence. We mean generating robust and high quality evidence. It's not the same.
