Brain@Scale: Ethical AI to advance cure for Neurodegenerative Diseases

Brain affected by Alzheimers, ICM

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, affect millions of people, women being more heavily impacted. The disease progresses silently years before the first symptoms appear.

The project Brain@scale develops a machine learning algorithm trained on complex brain imaging data to predict and better diagnose neurodegenerative diseases. Innovative mathematical techniques are used to ensure model robustness at high dimension.

We proudly sponsor this ICM multi-disciplinary project at the intersection of data science, neuro-imaging and computer science which for the first time integrates gender equality aspects, led by Olivier Colliot.
