The Human Diagnosis Project (also referred to as Human Dx, or the Project) is a worldwide effort 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 aims to understand the fundamental data structure of diagnosis by collecting and interpreting online contributions from members of the medical, scientific, and patient communities.
Human Dx's approach sits at the intersection of human-based computation, active machine learning, collective intelligence, decentralized ledgers, and games with a purpose. By developing the world’s first open diagnostic system, the Project has the potential to considerably alter the cost of, access to, and effectiveness of health care globally.
