$1.1M NIH Grant Will Further AI-powered Research Analysis

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

A team of scientists from the University of Florida (UF) will use a $1.1 million grant to further their work on the use of artificial intelligence-or AI-powered medical research for predicting and diagnosing Parkinson’s disease while maintaining patient privacy.

This grant, from the National Institutes for Health (NIH), will allow the scientists to train artificial neural network models — computer systems modeled on the human brain and nervous system — and further develop AI technologies that can predict and diagnose Parkinson’s, according to a press release.

“The proposed research will remove a major roadblock that restricts medical data accessibility and hinders cloud-based operations of deep-learning artificial neural networks for biomedical research,” the investigators said.
