Breaking News! NIH launches Bridge2AI program to expand the use of artificial intelligence in biomedical and behavioral research
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund has launched the Bridge to Artificial Intelligence (Bridge2AI) program to accelerate the widespread use of artificial intelligence (AI) by the biomedical and behavioral research communities. The Bridge2AI program will be assembling team members from diverse disciplines and backgrounds to generate tools, resources, and richly detailed data that are responsive to AI approaches. Through extensive collaboration across projects, Bridge2AI researchers will create guidance and standards for the development of ethically sourced, state-of-the-art, AI-ready data sets that have the potential to help solve some of the most pressing challenges in human health.
NIH has issued four awards for data generation projects to generate new biomedical and behavioral data sets ready to be used for developing AI technologies, and three awards to create a Bridge Center to integrate activities and knowledge across data generation projects while disseminating products, best-practices, and training materials.
