Artificial Intelligence for Combining Evidence-based and Data-driven Medicine

Pharmatics’ solution, MedAI, helps to address both problems by marrying evidence-based and data-driven medicine. MedAI operates by retrieving medical knowledge about clinical conditions and outcomes from millions of medical publications and formalizes the retrieved information using formats suitable for enriching the development of diagnostic models and preventative interventions.

By identifying, formalizing, and aggregating a priori evidence from biomedical literature, MedAI indirectly employs hundreds of data sources that had been used for deriving the evidence summarized in the literature.

Useful insights and outputs

A Smart Campus’ Digital Twin for Sustainable Comfort Monitoring

Smart cities must be large towns able to sustain their citizens’ incremental needs while promoting environmental sustainability. With the emergence of new information and communication technologies (ICTs), such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data, smart cities are closer to this realization. However, the deployment of such an amount of technology in a wide geographical area requires experimentation and testing. Consequently, our research proposes to create smart campuses (SCs) to experiment with the deployment of these ICT technologies.
