China's first Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) clinic based on an artificial intelligence (AI) diagnosis system has recently opened in Zhejiang Province.

Using AI technology containing a large number of clinical cases from experienced TCM practitioners, the 4,500-square-meter clinic in the historic town of Wuzhen is the first of its kind in China.

After a human doctor inputs a patient's condition, the system can deliver a diagnosis and write a fundamental prescription based on cases in its huge database. The human doctor can then modify the prescription to make it suitable for the patient.

Nie Rong, chief designer of the program said, the platform allows doctors to receive back up from famous TCM masters from both ancient and modern times.

Apart from a diagnosis, the platform helps to facilitate the dispensing process. It can automatically prepare convenient traditional medicines within 10 minutes.
