WHO launches Sarah, an artificial intelligence avatar on health issues. The project has multiple deficiencies, but aspires to become an alternative source of medical information.

Sarah answers very general questions with minimal empathy and always recommends going to the doctor. The WHO warns that “wersers may not always be accurate because they are based on patterns and data available in the conversation’s context. The avatar launched by the WHO has been created by the Soul Machines with the support of Rooftop Machines.
