New AI network to be launched for hospitals

A new AI network is to be launched across hospital sites, thanks to a partnership between three companies.

Named the King's College London Medical Imaging & AI Centre for Value Based Healthcare, or AI4BVH for short, the network has been developed by King's Collect London (KCL), NVIDIA and AI developer, Owkin.

The system will use anonymised patient data to identify areas that can be improved upon, whilst identifying research areas like neurodegenerative disease and cancer.

Co-founder and chief scientific officer of Owkin, Gilles Wainrab, said:

"The partnership brings together the best players in life science and healthcare, machine learning and data centre infrastructure."

The network will use a system known as federated learning, meaning that it will be used across a large amount of different smaller systems.

"Owkin also sees a huge research potential to analyse the patient data in the AI4VBH Centre and to identify biomarkers and high value subgroups for clinical trial design and diagnostics," Wainrab continued.
