We identified critical roadblocks & founded INDRC to address

  • Inadequate understanding of complex inter-relationship between brain structure & brain function
  • Limited knowledge of precise pathogenic pathways that impair or destroy neurons & their connections
  • Lack of application of artificial intelligence & machine learning solutions to study function & information processing of healthy and diseased human brain leading to new therapies
  • Ineffective collaboration between world’s leading experts from neurosciences, clinical research, mathematics, biophysics, biochemistry, bioinformatics, AI, and computer science to build computational models that combine knowledge & expertise

R&D Priorities

Deploy artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) methods & technologies in all possible layers

  • AI/ML-enhanced diagnostics, e.g., autonomous cognitive assessment, audio & video analysis
  • Novel therapeutic solutions, e.g., ML for protein engineering and new biologically active molecules
  • AI/ML-enhanced assistance for patients & caregiver care, e.g., assistive devices for home care and telemedicine
  • Prevention & brain health insights for health systems, primary care physicians, and individuals, e.g., big data processing of social, professional, and lifestyle impacts to individual patients
