ChatGPT-4 diagnosis used to save dog’s life
The AI assistant was used to quickly provide a diagnosis that vets were unable to give
The artificial intelligence service ChatGPT-4 was used to save the life of a dog with a deadly tick-borne disease, according to a viral thread written by the dog’s owner.
Cooper was distraught when his vet advised him to wait until his dog became sicker before taking more action, so he turned to artificial intelligence for help.
The post claimed that it used OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which was recently upgraded to GPT-4, to quickly scan blood test results and make an accurate diagnosis for the dog’s condition.
The owner described the dog’s blood test results and the entire situation in extreme detail to give the AI as much to work with as possible.
After processing all the information, the AI then suggested that the dog could have an underlying condition that was causing anemia.
The owner then asked the AI what that underlying condition could be, and use information from ultrasound scans and vet visits to rule out all of the possible answers except one: IMHA, a condition that affects red blood cells in dogs.
After speaking to a second vet to confirm that it could be possible that his dog could have the condition suggested by the AI, the owner immediately requested a test.
