EU projects are leading artificial intelligence technologies to serve patient needs and improve brain health


The AI4Brain Community of Interest (CoI) Webinar Series, initiated by the H2020 funded projects LETHE and ALAMEDA, recently hosted its first webinar on the latest Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications to improve the understanding of neurodegenerative diseases. The webinar brought together leading AI practitioners, clinicians, digital health experts, patient representatives and policymakers to exchange best practices and steer collective reflection over what is next for the European Union when it comes to AI applications in personalised brain health. The 90-minute webinar focused on the challenges and the most promising tools in digital brain health. Neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's diseases, and Multiple Sclerosis, were discussed as they cause gradual loss of neuronal structures and functions and manifest with hard-to-detect early onset signs, resulting in profound functional impairments and a burdensome impact on quality of life and wellbeing. The webinar was held online on the 3rd of March and the recording of it is now publicly available for those who missed it:

The LETHE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 101017405.
