Projects

Integration, federation, and retrieval of large-scale data repositories in Canada

We collaborate with the Canadian Institute of Health Information (CIHI) and the Ontario Health Data Platform (OHDP) to tackle novel challenges in data management and devise evaluation frameworks that center on security, performance and fairness.

Next generation of actionable prescriptive analysis using multi-resolution, multi-modality data

We build computation models of disease from multi-omics data using machine learning, deep learning and evolutionary algorithms, focusing on innovations that address the unique nature of health data and the unavailability and vagueness of gold-standard labels (e.g., pathology labels).

Democratization of AI, software and data for healthcare

We're international leaders in developing and disseminating open source software using low-cost point-of-care imaging. Our positive impact on the global computer–assisted medical interventions community has is constantly expanding. We'll meet new challenges for discovery, refinement of methods and innovative AI-powered solutions using large open source data, hence democratizing access to care and positive outcomes of AI.
