AdvertisementDr. Gupta.ai is an AI-driven chatbot that provides personalized health information and suggestions to its users. It was created by Martin Shkreli, a former pharmaceutical executive, who aims to enhance access to health information and advice with the convenience of a chatbot service.
Dr. Gupta uses a modified version of the underlying technology of OpenAI's ChatGPT, which can understand and answer complicated medical questions based on information available online and in medical journals. Users can enter their medical information, including vital signs, symptoms, allergies, and medications, to enable the chatbot to give more informative and personalized suggestions.
One of the unique features of Dr. Gupta.ai is the flexibility to choose between Imperial and SI metrics for inputting medical information, making it convenient for users worldwide. Additionally, the chatbot allows users to input lab test results related to various parameters, including albumin, ALT, AST, BUN, calcium, creatinine, glucose, HbA1c, potassium, sodium, triglycerides, LDL, HDL, and eGFR, providing comprehensive medical guidance.
The website follows a user-friendly approach, primarily focusing on medical inquiries. Users can easily access customer support via the provided link for policy and general contact inquiries.
Dr Gupta can be accessed after a free login/ signup and provides five free messages to new users. It also offers premium plans with more advanced features, which require payment.
Users can access Dr Gupta for free with up to 10 messages per month, while an unlimited chat subscription costs $20 per month. Shkreli claimed that Dr. Gupta's capabilities render websites like WebMD obsolete, as it can replace the need for visits to the doctor and help reduce medical costs.
The mind behind Dr. Gupta
Shkreli previously faced legal issues related to his pharmaceutical business practices. His former company Turing Pharmaceuticals, acquired the rights to Daraprim, a drug used to treat a rare parasitic disease, and hiked its price from $13.50 to $750 per pill. He was convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy in an unrelated case in 2017 and served seven years in prison. He was also fined $64.6 million and banned from the pharmaceutical industry for life after violating antitrust laws.
After his release from prison, Shkreli launched Druglike, a drug discovery software platform, which the Federal Trade Commission later investigated for potential violations of his industry ban. In response to the investigation, Shkreli defended Druglike as not being a pharmaceutical company.
Despite his past legal troubles, Shkreli launched Dr. Gupta chatbot intending to reestablish a business in the booming
