Will Data-Driven Healthcare Bring Precision Medicine to All? - iQ by Intel

#artificialintelligence

Experts discuss a medical ecosystem where people, policies and technology interconnect, allowing doctors to administer precise treatment to one patient -- the N of 1 -- and then deliver it to everyone. The old "take two aspirin and call me in the morning" cure is antithetical to today's precision medicine approach to healthcare, which zeroes in on an individual's unique genetic makeup, environment and lifestyle to determine an exacting treatment. Traditional healthcare is broadly based on cohort studies that compare risk factors and outcomes for a large set of patients who share similar symptoms. Cohort studies are more credible when the "N" -- the number of patients included in the study -- is very large. That's diametrically at odds with the goal of precision medicine, which aims to find a treatment plan tailored for a particular person: "The N of 1."


Artificial Intelligence for Precision Medicine and better Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Precision medicine is a medical model, which proposes customization of the healthcare to a subgroup of patients, based on a genetics, lifestyle and environment. This technique allows doctors and researchers to prognosis treatment and prevention strategies for a specific disease which can work on a group of people. It is opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach, in which disease treatment and prevention techniques are advanced for the average individual with much less attention for the variations among individuals. There is an overlap between the terms "precision medication" and "personalized medicine." As per the National Research Council, "personalized medicine" is a traditional word with a meaning close to "precision medication."

MGI: The power of AI and genetic sequencing - Huawei Publications

#artificialintelligence

The illnesses a person experiences in their lifetime are to a large extent determined by genetics. But today, the predictive power of gene sequencing technology is becoming invaluable in preempting disease. MGI Tech's mission is to benefit mankind through genomic technologies. The BGI subsidiary focuses on developing instruments and equipment for the medical and health sectors, providing a range of real-time, full-scenario, and full-life-cycle digital devices. However, the resulting rise in data requires the right digital infrastructure to make these services a reality.
