UF Health & AI
The University of Florida‘s academic health center — UF Health — is creating an academic hub to advance trustworthy AI in the health sciences. World-class infrastructure, high-quality data and diverse and inclusive teams are central to our vision.
Our Areas of Focus
Health care delivery
AI-enhanced health care decision-making and precision health.
AI-fueled development of novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
Public and population health
AI-powered modeling and surveillance of health determinants.
FEATURED AI RESEARCH AT UF HEALTH
The ICU of the Future
UF Health researchers are pioneering the use of artificial intelligence in patient care and the intensive care unit. In the ICU of the future, artificial intelligence will harness torrents of patient data to assist physicians’ decision making and potentially improve patients’ environment.
