ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE moving medicine forward
The University of Florida is making artificial intelligence the centerpiece of a major, long-term initiative that is combining world-class research infrastructure, cutting-edge research, and a transformational approach to curriculum. At the College of Medicine, teams are harnessing AI on many fronts. Clinician-scientists are developing AI-enabled systems to guide perioperative and acute care decision-making, such as pervasive sensing and remote monitoring to diagnose and treat complex conditions in the ICU. Data scientists are working to solve big data problems to spur data-driven medicine. Basic scientists are advancing AI-enhanced methods for analyzing molecular data — all to answer questions that will drive us to improve health outcomes and patient care.
Fueling the future
A new era of academic pursuit has emerged at the University of Florida. Students and faculty are now able to apply AI across every discipline, putting the university at the center of creating a future that is data-based but human-inspired.
Meet some AI EXPERTS at THE UF COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
Azra Bihorac M.D., MS FCCM, FASN
Jiang Bian, Ph.D., an associate professor in the department of health outcomes and bioinformatics and the 2021 Basic Science Research Award winner, discusses his work on artificial intelligence and machine learning in patient care.
New faculty will join a multi-college network of investigators harnessing AI to benefit science and health in exciting new ways. UF Health is strengthening infrastructure and augmenting expertise to expand AI research, applications and training in health care delivery, biomedical discovery, and public and population health.
AI ACROSS THE CURRICULUM
BOLDLY FUELING THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
Artificial intelligence is more than just the next wave of high-tech. It is transforming nearly every sector of the economy. Using AI to analyze massive amounts of data has dramatically affected communications, accounting, finance, transportation, medicine, agriculture and more.
The University of Florida is making artificial intelligence the centerpiece of a major, long-term initiative that is combining world-class research infrastructure, cutting-edge research, and a transformational approach to curriculum. Its depth is making the university a leader in AI research and development; its breadth will make sure every UF student develops a basic competency in AI regardless of their field of study.
