Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, particularly machine learning, are increasingly being used in drug research and development (R&D), with applications expanding beyond small molecules to include large-molecule modalities such as antibodies, gene therapies, and RNA-based therapies. These therapies, which make up a significant portion of the biopharma industry's current and future commercial potential, are expected to represent approximately 50% of the oncology market by revenue in 2030, with the majority coming from antibodies.
Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize the medical industry by quickly discovering new drug candidates and extending human lifespans through therapies that repair damage to cells and tissues, leading to a projected $50 billion AI drug discovery revolution and the possibility of living to 150 years old.
UF Health in Jacksonville is using artificial intelligence to help doctors diagnose prostate cancer, allowing them to evaluate cases more quickly and accurately. The AI technology, provided by Paige Prostate, assists in distinguishing between benign and malignant tissue, enhancing doctors' abilities without replacing them.
Microsoft is partnering with digital pathology provider Paige to develop the world's largest image-based AI model for identifying cancer, which can identify both common and rare cancers and aims to assist doctors in dealing with staffing shortages and growing caseloads. Paige has received FDA approval for its AI viewing tool FullFocus, and with Microsoft's help, it has built an advanced AI model that is training on 4 million slides, making it the largest computer vision model publicly announced. The model aims to improve accuracy and efficiency in pathology and democratize access to healthcare.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the field of cardiology, but it is not replacing cardiologists; instead, it is seen as a tool that can enhance efficiency and improve patient care, although it requires medical supervision and has limitations.
Cornell University has received a $1.7 million grant from the NIH to develop the Artificial Intelligence and Precision Nutrition Training Program, which aims to train scientists in AI and machine learning to address complex health challenges related to nutrition and chronic diseases.
Artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare must adopt a more holistic approach that includes small data, such as lived experiences and social determinants of health, in order to address health disparities and biases in treatment plans.
Healthcare revenue cycle management provider Aspirion has acquired Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning firm Infinia ML to enhance operational effectiveness, recovery yield, and collections for its healthcare clients. Infinia ML will operate as Aspirion's research and development engine, focusing on AI capabilities to drive financial performance improvements for healthcare providers.
AI is revolutionizing scientific research by accelerating drug discovery, predicting protein structures, improving weather forecasting, controlling nuclear fusion, automating laboratory work, and enhancing data analysis, allowing scientists to explore new frontiers and increase research productivity.
Researchers at OSF HealthCare in Illinois have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) model that predicts a patient's risk of death within five to 90 days after admission to the hospital, with the aim of facilitating important end-of-life discussions between clinicians and patients. The AI model, tested on a dataset of over 75,000 patients, showed that those identified as more likely to die during their hospital stay had a mortality rate three times higher than the average. The model provides clinicians with a probability and an explanation of the patient's increased risk of death, prompting crucial conversations about end-of-life care.
BioticsAI has developed an AI-based platform that integrates with ultrasound machines to improve the accuracy and efficiency of fetal malformation screenings, providing automated reports and time savings for doctors.
Google Health's chief clinical officer, Michael Howell, discusses the advances in artificial intelligence (AI) that are transforming the field of medicine, emphasizing that AI should be seen as an assistive tool for healthcare professionals rather than a replacement for doctors. He highlights the significant improvements in AI models' ability to answer medical questions and provide patient care suggestions, but also acknowledges the challenges of avoiding AI gaslighting and hallucinations and protecting patient privacy and safety.
Major drugmakers are using artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate drug development by quickly finding patients for clinical trials and reducing the number of participants needed, potentially saving millions of dollars.
