Biomedical Data for Artificial Intelligence at The 6th RIKEN-KI-SciLifeLab Symposium
For several years, RIKEN – Center for Integrative Medical Science in Yokohama, KI and SciLifeLab have been organising a series of symposia, alternating between Yokohama, Japan and Stockholm. The 6th symposium was held in Yokohama, addressing biomedical data for artificial intelligence.
The purpose of the symposium was to produce a White Paper detailing the biomedical/life science areas for which RIKEN, Karolinska Institute and SciLifeLab see a large potential for AI contributions to life science, and also to generate biomedical/life science reference datasets to attract AI researchers and open these datasets at the RIKEN and SciLifeLab Data Centers.
– A huge and rather wonderful co-creation session produced some insights that probably could not have been arrived at in any other room in the world, the competence and engagement from the participants was amazing to witness, says Magnus Bohman, KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
MedTechLabs financed the participance of six researchers from Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and SciLifeLab:
Erik Aurell (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, also speaker)
Magnus Boman (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, also speaker)
Andreas Lennartsson (Karolinska Institutet, also speaker)
Elisabet Einarsdottir (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, SciLifeLab)
Alma Andersson (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, SciLifeLab)
Ludvig Bergenstråhle (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, SciLifeLab)
– The symposium participants agreed that there is a huge potential to apply AI methods to complexly structured biomedical data which we have only stared to take advantage of. Bringing together researchers from these two disciplines in the same symposium made us excited and motivated to work more closely together, says Carsten Daub, Karolinska Institutet.
A core group of authors from the symposium has been continuing working on the White Paper with the goal to publish in an international peer-reviewed journal in 2020.
