How Doximity and Roblox Are Rolling Out GPT Products.
🧠 Transformers showing LLM impact in the niche.
Transformers will change Healthcare, education and the life sciences, but how?
I’m very interested in how companies like Salesforce and Canva are implementing Generative AI in their business. It’s even more interesting for growing platforms like Doximity and Roblox.
Doximity is basically the LinkedIn for Doctors and Nurses. Doximity is an online networking service for medical professionals. Launched in 2010, the platform offers its members curated medical news, telehealth tools, and case collaboration.
Roblox is basically the gaming, coding and entrepreneurship platform for Pre-Teens and younger teens. Roblox is an online game platform and game creation system developed by Roblox Corporation that allows users to program games and play games created by other users.
With ChatGPT hype, many companies have successfully built ChatGPT like chatbots into their platforms and many will do this a lot better than Microsoft has.
Doximity, a digital platform for medical professionals, rolled out a beta version of a ChatGPT tool for doctors that helps streamline some of their time-consuming administrative tasks, such as drafting and faxing preauthorization and appeal letters to insurers.
In a Feb. 9 earnings call, Doximity cofounder and CEO Jeffrey Tangney said the tool is an integration that works with ChatGPT, and can be accessed, for free, via DocsGPT.com.
Thanks to thethat alterted me to this launch. Bloomberg mentioned this about a week ago but I did not see it.
Doximity engineers began working on the beta site over the holidays, Tangney said, and the tool was announced this week during the earnings call.
Obviously medical chatbots have immense value considering the demographics winters we will soon be entering. We will have to DIY our aging relatives and their situations due to the healthcare cost crunch.
The fiercehealth.com PR isn’t very in-depth but they say:
"We had an opportunity to speak with a number of physicians and a very familiar use case quickly bubbled up: doctors still handle a lot of paperwork and much of it is still sent via fax machines," he said.
At least 70% of healthcare providers still exchange medical information by fax, according to federal officials. Clearly Generative A.I. and healthcare have a fantastic future together. One would indeed expect Teladoc, Amazon, Doximity and Google Health to implement interesting A.I. tools and LLMs for both patients and medical professionals.
"From appealing an insurance denial for a patient with a chronic condition to referring a patient to a specialist for further evaluation, there are many tasks that DocsGPT can help streamline with fewer disruptions to physicians’ clinical workflow," he said.
The PhilaVerse says:
The three key points:
DocsGPT is an integration with ChatGPT, OpenAI’s large language model, that works with Doximity’s free fax service.
The tool features a library of medical prompts that can generate text within your conversation with a chatbot (a similar experience to the regular ChatGPT).
Doximity warns that the technology has obvious limitations and the system should be used judiciously.
Given that Roblox has users and creators who are in an A.I. native generation makes sense to have Generative A.I. tools they use directly in the platform.
About Roblox GPT-3
A Roblox experience that demonstrates some capabilities of GPT (GPT-3 now, and GPT-4 when available). Here is a let's play video of this application by Dr. Alan D. Thompson. (see the video above).
How Transformers and LLMs will be integrated into niche platforms is where the real magic happens. I’m awaiting more news on Salesforces’ EinsteinGPT.
Salesforce and March Launch of EinsteinGPT
As customer relationship management (CRM) becomes more data-driven, the role of predictive analytics has grown and become more important. I think I’m also bullish on China’s Tech sector implementing their own versions of ChatGPT as they tend to be better at bringing a product into a state of actual utility for consumers.
So I’ll be watching the likes of Baidu, ByteDance, Alibaba, Tencent, Netease and others closely in this regard. We know they all have offerings around this in development and very near launch.
GPTZero in the Classroom
The obvious interesting of chatbot plagiarism for the education sector is also something I’m watching. GPTZero is a good example. Here is their latest update. So during the past month, the founder says their research team (currently six ML researchers from Princeton, Yale, McGill, and the University of Toronto) have worked extensively to address this problem, and train an AI detection model for student articles, and from unique datasets both collected and from our partner organizations. It’s getting better training for student paper use cases.
Some of the 20 A.I. tools Google will launch in 2023 and 2024, see their I/O conference in May/June for more details I believe will be impactful. I’m particularly excited about their Github Copilot competitor around PaLM.
