Deep Medicine

Project status: 

The advent of ‘Big Data’ (including vast datasets of digitised health records) offers unprecedented opportunities for extending our knowledge and understanding of complex disease patterns, risks, and treatment effects, but harnessing its full potential requires new and innovative methods of analysis.

The Deep Medicine programme responds to this opportunity by combining pioneering data analytic approaches, deep and machine learning techniques, and interdisciplinary collaboration to generate insights that will help tackle some of the major causes of death and disability worldwide.

The insights generated by the Deep Medicine programme will enable clinicians and health service providers to predict the risk of developing chronic disease, better assess its consequences, and identify the best management practices and interventions to improve health outcomes of future generations.
