POSTPONED: Digital frukost (AI for breakfast): AI-Mind - Artificial Intelligence for Dementia Prevention

Due to the Covid-situation, the event has been postponed until further notice. We will announce a new date for the event later.

How can artificial intelligence (AI) contribute to prevent dementia? The EU-funded project AI-Mind aims to reduce the disease’s burden by developing novel, AI-based tools to support healthcare professionals in their diagnosis and offering timely interventions to patients.

This event will be a physical event at the Informatics library at University of Oslo if the circumstances allow this. There will be served coffee and breakfast at the seminar from 8 o'clock. The event will in addition be broadcasted online, but only if the event is held physically.

 

More than 100,000 people have dementia in Norway and around 50 million worldwide, and this is set to double during the next 20 years. 

AI-Mind is a 5-year project funded by Horizon 2020, with the goal of facilitating a paradigm shift in clinical practice. The project started in March 2021. AI-Mind will create intelligent digital tools for screening of brain connectivity and dementia risk estimation in people affected by mild cognitive impairment.

During its lifecycle, two new artificial intelligence-based digital tools will be developed by AI-Mind. The AI-Mind Connector will identify dysfunctional brain networks, and the AI-Mind Predictor will assess dementia risk using data from the Connector, advanced cognitive tests, and genetic biomarkers. These two tools will be integrated into an intelligent diagnostics platform to identify both brain network disturbances and dementia risk, creating personalized patient reports for further intervention recommendations. 

About Ira Haraldsen

Ira Haraldsen (MD, Psychiatrist; PhD) coordinates Ai-mind, one of the largest projects within artificial intelligence in Norway. Haraldsen has a wide research experience from Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Stanford University, University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital. The AI-mind project intends to contribute to a better everyday life for people living with dementia.

 

About the seminar series

DLNs "Digital Frukost" is an open breakfast seminar series focusing on research activities at the interface between the biological sciences and that of mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering or social sciences. Examples of such research activities could be mathematical or computational modeling of biological systems, application of engineering/control systems theory on biological systems or inspired by biological systems, application of mathematics/statistics/machine learning to analyse big data in health or marine sector; from sensor systems, imaging, omics technologies, to policy making based on scientific models, and highlighting fair sharing and distribution of research data and resources. 

This event is organized in collaboration with NORA - AI for breakfast.

We look forward to your participation!
