Need Healthcare? AI Startup Curai Has an App for That

As a child, Neal Khosla became engrossed by the Oakland Athletics baseball team’s “Moneyball” approach of using data analytics to uncover the value and potential of the sport’s players. A few years ago, the young engineer began pursuing similar techniques to improve medical decision-making. It wasn’t long after Khosla met Xavier Amatriain, who was looking to apply his engineering skills to a higher mission, that the pair founded Curai. The three-year-old startup, based in Palo Alto, Calif., is using AI to improve the entire process of providing healthcare.
