Dr Hirsch is following in the footsteps (so to speak) of his grandfather Dr Werner Heisenberg, who pioneered the study of Quantum Mechanics in the early 1900s.
He studied theoretical medicine before working as an independent researcher. His special interests include cognitive neuroscience, semantic knowledge representation and the use of technology to support human thinking and decision-making.
The Berlin-based startup uses AI to diagnose patients electronically and matches them with the doctors in their vicinity. The consumers can ask the doctor a question, upload photos and include more info via free text, no matter where you are.
The doctors will provide you with next steps advice and direct you to local healthcare services where appropriate.
