The healing power of artificial intelligence

- EN - IT

Combining biomedical knowledge, mathematical principles, informatics and computing to study complex medical problems and help improve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. This is the essence of so-called computational medicine. One example? Analysing the human body as if it were a social network where cells communicate or even monitoring the progress of a chronic disease by setting off automated "alarms."

In the column dedicated to technology in collaboration with La Regione, we hosted this month a young researcher, Diego Ulisse Pizzagalli, active at USI in the field of computational medicine at the Euler Institute (EUL) and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB).

The column

Nowadays, technology and informatics play a crucial role in everyone’s life. Their constant presence offers opportunities and challenges that are not always easy. To help us better understand the often complex issues, the newspaper La Regione offers a monthly column in which USI faculty and researchers provide perspectives and insights into the multifaceted aspects of the digital age.
