OpenAI’s Sam Altman and Thrive Global’s Arianna Huffington Launch AI Health Coaching Company

The founder and CEO of Thrive Global founder Arianna Huffington and OpenAI co-founder and CEO Sam Altman are launching a new AI health startup called Thrive AI Health, Time reports.

Thrive AI Health is tapping the surge of artificial intelligence to find ways to use the technology to drive healthcare, wellness, and longevity research forward, including brain tumor and cancer detection and early Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

Huffington launched Thrive Global in 2016 as a behavior change technology company offering science-based tools and technologies, including artificial intelligence, to enhance productivity and well-being.

Thrive Global is now joining the OpenAI Startup Fund in launching Thrive AI Health.

The CEO of Thrive AI Health will be DeCarlos Love, who worked on AI, sensors, and health and fitness wearables at Google and worked at Apple.

The new AI coach will be added to Thrive Global’s platform and will also be available in the Thrive Global mobile app. Thrive AI Health, Thrive Global claims, will use generative AI to “hyper-personalize and scale behavior change.”

Details of the investments backing Thrive AI Health were not disclosed.
