Twitter co-founder invests in Delhi-based startup company
New Delhi : Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has decided to invest money in Delhi-based health startup that is working on technology based on Artificial Intelligence.
Founded in 2016, 'Visit' is an on-demand healthcare service which provides its users a pool of medical specialists and general physicians to choose from for consultation.
Recently, the company introduced an artificial-intelligence based bot that acts like a personal assistant to the user.
Vaibhav Singh, co-founder and head of growth at the firm, claims it is country's first AI-integrated health app, and "we had pitched to our investors highlighting this aspect only".
Stone, one of the three Silicon Valley-based investors in the startup, said Visit facilitates a "symbiotic relationship between AI and doctors", making a hugely positive impact for patients.
"This is why I can get so optimistic about technology amplifying the best in humanity. Investing in Visit is my small way of contributing to a future where AI is seen as a positive enhancement of humanity that really does improve lives," said Stone.
Visit was started by four BITS Pilani students, the venture had already received funding from MapMyIndia.
