In times of the next outbreak of flu and the still existing Covid pandemic, it is good to seek initial medical advice from home. The ten million people who have already downloaded the Ada app and have carried out an average of two symptom analyzes each have thought that too.

The application is set up as a bot that asks you questions until it comes to one or more diagnoses. The app points out several times that it is not a substitute for a doctor and that it is best to go to your doctor or an emergency room for a final diagnosis.
Ada asks you numerous questions, on the basis of which she tries to determine a clinical picture.
Before starting the virtual examination, you have to answer a few questions about yourself, your age and some typical pre-existing conditions. Then the start of the first case begins, in which the central symptoms are queried before the detailed analysis begins. In our example, the patient had a cough, fever and chest pain and shortness of breath.
Ada delivered four possible diseases. In addition, a visit to the family doctor was urgently recommended.
Ada then asked various detailed questions and finally came up with a total of four possible diseases, each of which was weighted with a different probability. However, as in our case, this can lead to very different results: from coronavirus disease to pneumonia. For this reason, Ada can only be seen as a supplement; in spite of everything, a visit to the doctor is the preferred option in the event of an illness.
