artefact's 'aim' is a self-driving AI clinic that brings the doctor to your door

in the past few years, we’ve seen some pretty creative uses of AI. self-driving buses and trains have made the headlines, as well as autonomous pods that deliver your take-away, and there’s even a 24-hour convenience store that drives straight to your door. yet despite advancement after advancement improving our quality of life, the everyday public healthcare industry remains stuck in the past, with patients waiting for hours in hospitals, and imperfect access to patient data. the whole hassel of booking a doctors appointment or waiting in the hospital means the most advanced technology most people get to use is a google search providing a very exaggerated self-diagnosis. with this in mind, artefact group, a seattle-based technolgy design agency, have created AIM–a portable, self-driving AI clinic that comes straight to your door.

artefact’s AIM takes the form of an autonomous vehicle that uses AI to diagnose the health problems of patients, delivering more precise assessments, and addressing specific healthcare needs as they come up. the system allows patients to use simple interactions to share details about how they feel. the whole unit is optimized for self assessment, featuring built-in bridge diagnostics like thermography, imagine, and breath analysis. inside the mobile clinic you can also find built-in pressure sensitive scale to measure weight, BMI, balance and posture, and a seat that provides an acoustic analysis of respiration and cardiac rhythm.

the AIM unit also uses motion sensors paired with ‘on-body’ projections and augmented reality to help the user call attention to their various systems, whilst controlled lighting in the clinic facilitates assessment via image recognition. surround displays provide AI-driven, real time instructions to the patient. once a diagnosis is made, a visual summary of the appointment is sent to its sibling app on the patients phone, along with instructions as to what to do next.

the self-driving clinic minimizes the logistical burden on patients, preventing the need for them to have to book an doctor’s appointment, or wait for hours in a hospital. the system sets out to make patients more likely to seek care for their illness, before both conditions and costs accelerate. the system even has an on-board pharmacy, removing the need to go and pick up new medication from a separate place.
