New research shows that the number of mitochondria in a cell is associated with drug resistance, which could have a far-reaching impact in cancer treatment.
Alzheimer’s disease, a terminal neurodegenerative disease, has historically been diagnosed based on observing significant memory loss.
The patterning of molecules is critical in applications including microarrays, tissue engineering, biosensors, biomaterials and fundamental cell studies.
Biophysics-inspired AI tools would provide a richer amount of information to support intraoperative decisions of surgeons during removal of cancerous tissue.
IBM’s collaboration with The Michael J. Fox Foundation aims to better understand Parkinson's disease (PD), a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder.
Grip strength is a useful metric in a surprisingly broad set of health issues. It has been associated with the effectiveness of medication in individuals with Parkinson’s disease, the degree of cognitive function in schizophrenics, the state of an individual’s cardiovascular health, and all-cause mortality in geriatrics. At IBM Research, one of our ongoing challenges […]
Mental health and neurological disorders are a growing epidemic. In the U.S., nearly one in every five people has a mental health condition (1). Yet there is a growing shortage of mental health professionals to adequately treat this need. By 2025, it’s estimated that demand for psychiatrists may outstrip supply by up to 15,600 psychiatrists […]
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, impacting approximately 2.7 million people in the U.S alone . It is a complex set of diseases and, if left untreated, can lead to blindness. It’s a particularly large issue in Australia, where only 50% of all people who have it are actually diagnosed […]
Recent times have witnessed significant progress in natural language understanding by AI, such as machine translation and question answering. A vital reason behind these developments is the creation of datasets, which use machine learning models to learn and perform a specific task. Construction of such datasets in the open domain often consists of text originating […]
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is a condition in which plaque forms on the walls of coronary arteries, causing them to narrow. Eventually, this could lead to a heart attack, or death. This condition is now the single largest health problem in the world, with over one million people in the US undergoing cardiac catheterization – […]
