Google DeepMind Doubles Up On Healthcare Staff

The Drum – If the rapid expansion of Google’s DeepMind healthcare team is any indication, the company is doubling down on its investment in healthcare research. The team has doubled in size to 40 employees since last February. Recent hires include Tony Corkett, who helped the NHS digitize X-Ray’s and Google Maps team leader Andrew Eland. “Since we announced DeepMind Health earlier this year, we’ve been inundated with requests and suggestions from patients, nurses, doctors, researchers and Trusts. It’s clear there’s massive demand for new technology to help patient care, and many brilliant people across the NHS with practical ideas about how to make it happen,” said DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman in a statement.
