NIH pumps $130M in­to health and med­i­cine AI re­search

The NIH is all set to give a ma­jor push to the med­i­cine AI com­mu­ni­ty.

As a part of its Bridge to Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence pro­gram (Bridge2AI), the NIH fund will in­vest $130 mil­lion over four years to pro­mote the use of AI in bio­med­ical and be­hav­ioral re­search.

The goal is to gen­er­ate new “flag­ship” da­ta sets and cre­ate best prac­tices for ma­chine learn­ing analy­sis.

While AI is used in the bio­med­ical and health­care space, the NIH said that its adop­tion is not up to mark. “The bio­med­ical re­search com­mu­ni­ty gen­er­ates a wealth of da­ta, but most of these da­ta are not suit­able for ma­chine learn­ing be­cause they are in­com­plete,” said the NIH on its web­site.
