A case in point is the just-announced project by the pair at Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd University Hospital in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, where speech is being implemented in a bid to deliver a truly 21st century healthcare experience by supporting its clinicians in the accurate creation and updating of medical notes, as well as many other practical applications.
