AI-Mind joins forces with EBRAINS research infrastructure to tackle the challenge of brain diseases


The EU-funded AI-Mind project, led by Prof. Ira Haraldsen of Oslo University Hospital, was one of only thirteen projects worldwide that were successful with their applications to the Human Brain Project's (HBP) EBRAINS Research Infrastructure Voucher Call. With this, the AI-Mind project gets access to the EBRAINS research infrastructure and digital tools that have been developed with, by and for researchers to address challenges in brain research.

The Voucher covers the work of an expert team led by Prof. Petra Ritter of Charité University Medicine Berlin, which will help to implement tailor-made workflows that are compliant with the General Data Protection (GDPR) to enable AI-Mind to best use the EBRAINS infrastructure. The third element that completes the alliance triangle is The Virtual Brain Cloud Project (TVB-Cloud), a programme of the European Open Science Cloud that develops virtual brain simulations. The collaboration of these initiatives not only aligns with the European Digital Health strategy in using digital technologies for the benefit of patients, but is also the first with the potential to take a critical step towards an artificial intelligence (AI) revolution in brain healthcare. Moreover, the alliance of AI-Mind, TVB-Cloud and HBP is timely because the European Commission recently proposed the very first legal framework on AI in healthcare.
