NIHR awards £12 million to artificial intelligence research to help understand multiple long-term conditions. Professor Bruce Guthrie will lead one of three new Research Collaborations. The NIHR has awarded almost £12 million to new research that will use advanced data science and artificial intelligence (AI) methods to identify and understand clusters of multiple long-term conditions and develop ways to prevent and treat them. An estimated 14 million people in England are living with two or more long-term conditions, with two-thrids of adults aged over 65 expected to be living with multiple long-term conditions by 2035. People who develop multiple long-term conditions often do not have a random assortment of diseases but rather a largely predictable cluster of conditions.
