Five Myths of Artificial Intelligence – Discussion by IBI Director, Jason H. Moore, Ph.D. in the Penn Medicine News Blog.
Penn Medicine has put in place a comprehensive team to harness the power of big data for improving healthcare. This team includes C. William Hanson III, M.D., chief medical information officer and vice president of Penn Medicine, and Mike Draugelis, chief data scientist at Penn Medicine. Both work closely with faculty in the Institute for […]
Scientists and healthcare providers have always collected and analyzed data and have developed tools for analyzing large data sets. However, with the pervasiveness of monitoring devices, sequencing technologies, and increased adoption of electronic health records, biomedical data is becoming increasingly diverse and complex.

Using natural language processing, sophisticated artificial intelligence techniques that allow computers […]
IBI faculty member Mitchell Lazar, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues published a paper in Cell showing how single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) can influence anti-diabetic drug response. This work has important implications for the development of precision medicine strategies for common diseases such as type 2 diabetes. For more information see the Penn Medicine press release.
