Daniel Kraft is striving to avert medicine being prescribed incorrectly
Scientists working with Big Pharma are creating a way to print “personalized pills” using derived through artificial intelligence, according to news reports.
Daniel Kraft is striving to avert medicine being prescribed incorrectly and having toxic side effects on patients.
To accomplish that, he has created a 3D printer that could design pills based on the individual’s needs of patients.
The machine, which is a prototype, would use personal traits revealed using artificial intelligence
According to the DS: Small doses of every drug needed could then be added together to create a “polypill” to target multiple issues.
“We have polypills today in common, over-the-counter cold and flu remedies,” Dr. Kraft said in his Ted talk.
“And there have been prevention polypill studies done, giving combinations of statins, blood pressure, aspirin.
“In randomized studies, these have been shown to reduce risk, compared to placebo dramatically.
“But these polypills weren’t personalized, they weren’t optimized to the individual.
“What if we could optimize your personalized polypill? So it would be built for you, based on you, it could adapt to you, even every single day.
“Well, we’re now in the era of 3D printing, you can print personalized braces, hearing aids, orthopedic devices, even I’ve been scanned and had my jeans tailored to fit me.”
So Dr. Kraft and his team decided to set out and produce the first 3D pill printer to conquer these problems.
Artificial intelligence could cause human extinction says, expert
“Instead of taking six medications, for example, I could integrate them into one,” he revealed.
“So it would be easier to take, improve adherence and potentially, it could even integrate into supplements, like vitamin D or CoQ10.
“So with some help – I call these “IntelliMeds,” and with the help of my IntelliMedicine engineering team, we built the first IntelliMedicine prototype printer.”
