Chatbots are now becoming integral parts of the food, fashion and travel industries, but they are also powering the future of healthcare, as the Your.MD app showcases. Your.MD is an artificially intelligent chatbot app that uses machine learning algorithms and natural language processing to get at the heart of the concerns from its users. With this app, Your.MD claims that it has built "the largest ever medical map linking probabilities between symptoms and conditions" that have been crowdsourced by medical professionals.

Your.MD was tested at the RE•WORK deep learning conference in London, where it successfully collected patient information using a series of simple questions, which shows the potential for this kind of technology when it comes to filling and filing medical forms.

As part of an ongoing partnership with Samsung, the AI health application now comes pre-installed on all Galaxy smartphones.
