AI in Personalized Medicine and Digital Health

AI aims to move medical treatment away from general, one-size-fits-all options to more personalized solutions. Learn more about the incredible amounts of information generated through precision medicine, and the critical capabilities needed to analyze, store, normalize and trace that data. This seminar is tailored towards those working in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.

1:20 Graphical Models for Precision Therapeutics

Jonathan_DryJonathan Dry, PhD, Director, Bioinformatics and Data Science, Research and Early Development, Oncology R&D, AstraZeneca

Networks can provide a powerful representation of biological systems that capture their underlying complexity by integrating information of biological entities and their interactions. The current work focuses on a network approach based on graph representation learning, to integrate prior knowledge with data corresponding to drugs and patients. This approach enables us to simultaneously combine multi-omics and clinical features with the goal of predicting biomarkers associated with patient outcomes and drug response.

1:45 AI-Guided Read & Write Brain Tech Platform: Revolutionizing Brain Therapy

Maiques_AnaAna Maiques, CEO, Neuroelectrics

What would you do if you could read and write on the brain? Let’s imagine Neuroelectrics can non-invasively read (EEG) and write (transcranial current stimulation) your brain and with AI, build a personalized model of your brain. This personalized model would allow us to design a protocol to help treat your brain disease using non-invasive neuromodulation. The company is now implementing its AI-guided read/write platform to epilepsy, where we are conducting a clinical trial at Boston Children’s Hospital for kids that do not respond to medication.

2:10 Making Artificial Intelligence Actionable for Patients with Chronic Diseases

Monaghan CaitlinCaitlin Monaghan, PhD, Data Scientist II, Applied Advanced Analytics, Fresenius Medical Care North America

Fresenius Medical Care (the world’s largest kidney dialysis provider) leverages artificial intelligence to gain insights that guide the delivery of truly personalized care. We will detail several examples of machine learning-based predictive model algorithms designed for pre-emptive identification of patients at a greater risk of: 7-day all-cause and fluid overload-related hospital admissions, non-adherence with routine dialysis, and progression from chronic kidney disease to end-stage kidney disease.

2:35 Refreshment Break (Cityview Foyer & Harbor Level Atrium)

2:55 Deep Learning Network to Generate Synthetic Dataset to Protect Personally Identifiable Information in Clinical Trials

Zhao_ShanrongShanrong Zhao, PhD, Director of Computational Biology, Pfizer, Inc.

The challenge in data privacy is to share data while protecting personally identifiable information. However, de-identified EHR (Electronic Health Record) data risk should be re-identified. Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) can generate synthetic datasets to protect personally identifiable information.

3:15 Personalized Healthcare: Leveraging IoT & Quantum Computing

Rashid_UzairUzair Rashid, Consultant, Healthcare Strategy & Innovation Leader 

The healthcare system is fragmented, costly, slow to react, and contains gaps in access to care. By leveraging key tech enablers, Quantum Computing, and IoT devices, we can create an integrated, proactive solution for individualized healthcare management. Stay tuned.
