IIT Mandi collaborates with RxDataScience for AI portal
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi has tied up with RxDataScience Inc., a leading healthcare manufacturer in the US, to create a portal documentation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Research in the Pharmaceutical Sector.
Further, IIT Mandi team is also planning to work closely with RxDataScience Inc, to apply deep-learning methods and cognitive algorithms for discovering patterns among patient journeys and social ties among physicians. This is part of a long-term collaboration focused on performing machine-learning on healthcare datasets concerning patients and physicians and developing novel web-based visualizations.
According to Prof Varun Dutt, Assistant Professor, School of Computing and Electrical Engineering, IIT Mandi, data sciences in India are at a very nascent stage yet but in the US, most healthcare and pharmaceutical companies have moved onto the consulting stage wherein live cases are debated online by the doctors and medical practitioners’ community.
