NCSA Affiliates Receive Funding For AI-Powered Brain Mapping

National Center for Supercomputing Applications faculty affiliates Zhi-Pei Liang and Bradley P. Sutton and Center for Artificial Intelligence Innovation Director Volodomyr Kindratenko are three of six co-principal investigators on the team whose vision is to pair AI and advanced brain mapping technologies to elevate clinicians’ capability to diagnose, monitor and treat debilitating neural diseases.

Ours is the first attempt in the world to develop next-generation AI-enabled brain mapping technologies capable of unraveling the structural, functional and molecular fingerprints of brain function and diseases.Zhi-Pei Liang, NCSA Faculty Affiliate and Co-PI of the project

This project focuses on using AI to help advance the diagnosis and treatment of debilitating neural diseases such as epilepsy, stroke and tumors.

Thanks to an initial seed grant from the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, the goals of mapping the human brain with artificial intelligence and advancing diagnosis and treatment methods are one step closer to fruition.
