The Chinese Health Robot Xiaoyi, Passed the National Medical Licensing Examination

There’s more evidence that Asian robots are scaling faster than western robots.

A robot developed by Tsinghua University has passed China’s National Medical Licensing Examination. The robot named Xiao-Yi scored 456, exceeding the acceptance line by 96 points. It is the first robot in China to participate in the exam with full marks of 600.

It’s a probable first for robots at the dawn of AI’s impact on the health care industry. For the First Time, a Robot Passed a Medical Licensing Exam, what do you think?

Indeed, Xiaoyi is just one example of how China is going to be a future leader in how AI can improve efficacy of machine learning in any number of industries. As Beijing has made it a priority in the years ahead, many expect to see China as a global leader in robotics, AI and areas of high potential such as additive printing, IoT and smart city planning.

This robot, developed by leading Chinese AI company iFlytek Co., Ltd., has been designed to capture and analyze patient information. The IoT of health care is coming, and a data-native health care is on the horizon.

China is determined to be a leader in the AI of health-care.

China Aims to be a Global Frontrunner in AI by 2030

China can scale HealthTech faster in AI and it must due to its high population. By setting the goal of 2030, to be the global leader in AI, China is setting a realistic push to be an AI-native society backed by the one-party socialist Government.
