Generative AI in Action at Kaiser Permanente
Seth from Kaiser shared practical applications of Generative AI, particularly in content summarization. “Generative AI gives us that summarization capability. We want to make it crisp, and Generative AI helps us achieve that,” he explains. This application is crucial in managing the vast amount of information healthcare professionals handle daily, ensuring concise, accurate, and relevant communication.
