Harman announced this week that it has developed a private large language model trained on a variety of healthcare data sets.
WHY IT MATTERS
The Samsung Electronics subsidiary’s advanced deployment techniques using quantization to reduce model size and processing costs by up to one-tenth, according to Harman.
The artificial intelligence model uses natural language processing to help healthcare organizations extract insights from their data, including clinical trial data. The company says HealthGPT offers:
Real-time, context-aware clinical insights.
An automated framework for fine-tuning and validating the LLM and outputs.
Customized datasets to further fine-tune the model for enhanced performance.
The India-based company says it tested the model for accuracy and hallucinations using its LLM testing framework and then results were validated by healthcare subject matter experts.
THE LARGER TREND
Samsung gained access to 8,000 software designers and engineers working on cloud-based consumer and enterprise experiences when it purchased Harman International Industries in 2016.
Today Harman, known for automotives and electronics, supports a number of industries with digital transformation platforms. Harman DTS provides Internet of Things management, a remote care platform, software, analytics and more to providers, payers, medical device manufacturers and others.
With supercomputing, healthcare organizations have also developed their own LLMs that leverage generative AI.
In August, the National University Health System in Singapore said it developed its own healthcare GPT to enhance clinicians’ productivity. NUHS RUSSELL-GPT summarizes patient case notes, writes referral letters for doctors and allows NUHS staff to ask questions related to medical conditions and clinical practice guidelines.
ON THE RECORD
“The business value of generative AI cannot be overstated. Organizations that scale and implement swiftly will see significant competitive advantages, productivity gains and more – but only if they can unlock their data and move from general purpose applications to more specialized, domain-specific applications,” said Nick Parrota, chief digital and information officer for Harman and president of digital transformation solutions, in a statement.
