Verily is building a medical search engine

From: Fast Company by CHRISTINA FARR (03.03.16):
Andy Conrad, who heads up Verily—formerly known as Google Life Sciences—is working with a coalition of academic hospitals, physicians, universities, and patient advocates to bring medical information into one place. He calls it the “Google of human systems biology.”
“Unfortunately, most of the information that scientists use isn’t easily available,” Conrad said on stage at the Future of Genomic Medicine conference in San Diego on Thursday. “That information sits around in difficult-to-crack domains.”
Conrad didn’t provide many specific details on how the product would work. But he did say that it would involve a library of sorts that leverages machine-learning technology. “It doesn’t work as wonderfully as a human,” he says. “But it can answer questions.”
