Artificial Intelligence and Data Science

Our effort in this area ranges from the use of artificial intelligence to improve the analysis of biomedical images to the development of novel algorithms for the analysis of large population-based datasets. We are particularly interested in the use of AI and novel data science approaches to assess cardiovascular risk, both in hospital-based settings such as the intensive care unit and, using smartphone technology, in the ambulatory setting.
