Considering IVF? Life Whisperer is an Artificial Intelligence Company that will quite possibly turn the IVF Industry on its head and change many many couples lives. Its goal is to significantly increase the success rates of IVF. With current success rates being 20-30% it could use some help. I interview one of the co-founders of Life Whisperer, Michelle Perugini and she describes how the technology will allow IVF clinics to better classify embryos for more successful transfer rates. In fact, in a clinical study of 600 participants, Life Whisperer technology was able to select viable embryo 30% better than leading embryologists. Currently Life Whisperer is still in the clinical trial state but they plan to make it available to IVF clinics globally very soon!
