AI – Artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) and the increasing digitalisation of society are changing the way people live and work, and influencing society in general. The consequences need to be studied from multiple perspectives, involving issues relating to technology, ethics, law, philosophy, gender studies, human-computer interaction, linguistics, the education sector, politics and other fields.
Uppsala University’s ambition is to establish a position of strength in research and education in the digitalisation of society and the associated challenges and opportunities. The University has therefore started a five-year strategic action – AI4Research – aimed at strengthening interdisciplinary research and education in AI and machine learning (ML).
AI CAN HELP US TO TACKLE SOME OF THE MOST CRUCIAL FUTURE CHALLENGES
Great synergies can emerge from the meeting between mathematical and medical expertise. In Uppsala, heart researchers and mathematicians are among those meeting to usher the future in at our Swedish hospitals through AI and register-based studies. The mathematicians build systems and algorithms, the medics add questions, data and knowledge about how methods need to be tested before they can be applied. As well as providing support for processing patient record data, the computer systems can identify patterns and, by means of machine learning, learn to solve problems without being explicitly programmed for the purpose. This approach has various medical applications, such as systems for interpreting ECG results and radiation equipment for cancer treatment with automated processing. Examples of developments in technological areas include adaptive cruise control, self-driving cars and robots.
