Precision Medicine Delivered with Empathy

Revolutionizing Care for Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Other Common Diseases on a Global Scale

The Emory Empathetic AI for Health Institute (AI Health) harnesses the power of machine learning and big data to transform the ways in which health care systems prevent, diagnose, treat, and cure diseases. The three-pronged mission of the institute is to innovate, deploy, and scale up accessible, cost-effective, and equitable artificial intelligence (AI) tools into health care solutions for patients at Emory Healthcare and, ultimately, across the globe.

Launched in fall 2023, the Empathetic AI Health Institute is part of AI.Humanity, a university-wide initiative dedicated to shaping the artificial intelligence revolution to better human health, generate economic value, and promote social justice.

Inroads Against Common Diseases

Faculty associated with AI.Health are working to improve the detection, diagnosis, prognosis, and prediction of treatment response for more than two dozen conditions including lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, and diseases of the eye. The institute is led by Anant Madabhushi, a global leader, innovator, and entrepreneur in developing and deploying AI to improve outcomes for individuals with cancer and other diseases. Madabhushi’s team has collectively received more than $100M in research funding.
