"Health is the application of digital technology in all respects. First of all, these are the digital technologies that we are starting to use in a pilot mode. For example, mobile applications, special sites, etc. They are aimed at strengthening and preserving human health," the minister added.

Another project is the introduction of solutions for machine learning on the basis of the Kazakh-British Technical University with the participation of Kazakh scientists. The goal of the projects is to develop methods and platforms for data processing of the health care system using machine learning methods.
