Scripps and Nvidia look to apply AI to health data

The Scripps Research Translational Institute and Nvidia are teaming up to apply artificial intelligence to genomic and health sensor data, the organizations announced Tuesday.The goal of the new partnership is to detect and prevent diseases by applying machine learning and deep learning to data from genome sequencing and digital health sensors. Because sensor and genomic data are so plentiful, the only way to truly understand and analyze them is with machines, said Dr. Eric Topol, founder and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute."It's a formidable task that no one has yet achieved," he said. The amount of genomic data doubles every seven months, according to the organizations.
