Preventing prescription dispensing errors using machine intelligence
In the United States over four billion prescriptions are dispensed every year. Of those four billion around 2.4 million are incorrectly dispensed, which can be a fatal error. A team of researchers from the University of Michigan looks to machine intelligence to help humans reduce their dispensing errors.
