OpenAI CEO Sam Altman Launches Thrive AI, a Personalized Health Coach

A new company named Thrive AI Health is set to transform wellness using artificial intelligence. Co-founded by Arianna Huffington and Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI, Thrive AI employs AI to develop a personalized “health coach” tailored to individual needs. This coach evaluates various facets of your life, such as sleep, diet, fitness, stress, and social interactions, to provide data-informed suggestions.

The health data will be accessible via a smartphone app or a virtual assistant.

Leadership and Vision

Leading the initiative is DeCarlos Love, who previously led the fitness and health experience at Fitbit. Thrive AI intends to train its AI coach using a mix of scientific research, medical data, and partnerships with institutions like Stanford University School of Medicine. The goal is to build a comprehensive health data platform accessible through a smartphone app or a virtual assistant integrated with Thrive’s existing offerings. This system will learn your behavior patterns and deliver real-time health advice.

Focus on Accessibility and Privacy

Thrive AI aims to provide a more thoughtful approach to health management. They focus on making personalized health coaching available to all while addressing health disparities. Security and user privacy are top priorities, with Dr. Gbenga Ogedegbe, a health equity expert, serving as an advisor. They also commit to basing recommendations on peer-reviewed research and ensuring users have full control over the information used to personalize their experience.
