Big Data, Big Possibilities

By leveraging scalable computational power, machine learning offers the potential to predict outcomes of a person’s disease from real-world data extracted from electronic medical records. What is a Digital Twin? The Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Pittsburgh has invested time and resources into building an artificial intelligence model that would predict the way that a disease, such as macular degeneration, would progress in a patient and allow clinicians to test therapeutic interventions on a virtual patient or a ‘Digital Twin.’ Making an informed choice in your own treatment! The Digital Twin platform would use big data to show
