Healthy newborns thanks to artifical intelligence
The ETH AI Center is becoming an interdisciplinary hotspot for artificial intelligence. A new generation of AI researchers will be trained there, says Professor Andreas Krause, but also AI entrepreneurs who bring research to the economy. Examples of such application-oriented research already exist today. Professor Julia Vogt, for example, bridges the gap between data-driven computer science and applied medicine.
