PHDA and Amazon Web Services Collaboration Yields Results to Improve Patient Care Through Machine Learning

Last August, PHDA and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a new collaboration to advance innovation in areas such as cancer diagnostics, precision medicine, electronic health records, and medical imaging. As recipients of the Amazon Research Awards, the scientists part of this unique consortium formed by UPMC, the University of Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), have been hard at work over the last year applying machine learning techniques to study breast cancer risk, identify depression markers, and understand what drives tumor growth, among many other applications. This work is fueled by new advances in machine learning technologies and enhanced access to computing power, which have offered new opportunities for researchers and healthcare professionals to understand and treat some of the most prolific diseases.
