Combining AI with DNA analysis to help in the prevention of sports-related injuries.
With the huge push for the use of Artificial Intelligence in everyday life, some are attempting to focus its power on DNA analysis. Internal research shows that certain genetic markers inside a human’s DNA can help determine whether a person is prone to having a certain type of injury in the course of their life. This conclusion opens the door for the future of healthcare and allows humans to take preventative action to stop personal injury. 

Golden Thread Technology will give users the ability to harness the power of DNA analysis and Artificial Intelligence in the palm of their hand. Using a seamless user interface and custom analytical backend, Golden Thread’s app takes in a user's DNA, along with other health questionnaire data, and then returns a summary. The returned summary describes the user’s health vulnerabilities as well as steps they can take to curb those vulnerabilities. Golden Thread’s app will also use real-time data collected from native smartphone apps along with external devices like Fitbit and Apple watches, to improve the analytical summary.
