    We're building conversational AI to lead our users from their symptoms to the likely condition, by asking questions and learning from the answers. It's our ambition to be more accurate than a doctor eventually - like autonomous cars will be much safer than cab drivers. Diagnosis is a bottleneck on this planet - once you know what you have, getting treatment becomes only a logistics challenge.
