The Human Diagnosis Project (also referred to as Human Dx, or the Project) is a global, open medical project that aims to map any health problem to its possible diagnoses. The Project’s mission is to empower anyone, anywhere with the world’s collective medical insight. Human Dx helps humankind understand the fundamental data structure of diagnosis by collecting and interpreting online contributions from members of the medical, patient, and scientific communities.
Human Dx's approach sits at the intersection of machine learning, collective intelligence, decentralized ledgers, human-based computation, and Games with a Purpose. By developing the first open diagnostic system, the Project has the potential to considerably alter the cost of, access to, and effectiveness of health care globally.
