Conquering heaps of data with AI and Co.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Artificial intelligence and big data recognize patterns and connections in data much faster than humans ever could. That's why machine learning comes in handy when researchers have to sift through huge amounts of data on genetic issues or diseases. In our Topic of the Month , you'll get to know how Big Data in medicine can take some of the work off their hands.

Enjoy reading!

Sensor: early Alzheimer’s detection up to 17 years in advance

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests

The dementia disorder Alzheimer’s disease has a symptom-free course of 15 to 20 years before the first clinical symptoms emerge. Using an immuno-infrared sensor developed in Bochum, a research team is able to identify signs of Alzheimer’s disease in the blood up to 17 years before the first clinical symptoms appear.

Big Data in genetics: reaching diagnosis through heaps of data

Topic of the Month

Most laboratory tests only produce small amounts of data that are already sufficient for successful diagnosis. It becomes more difficult with genetic questions: whether it is about a genetic disease or the properties of tumors, there are always large amounts of data that must be considered. Both research and medicine need help to identify the connections and patterns in the data to find a diagnosis. This is where machine learning comes in.

AI detects whether drugs are effective for neurodegenerative diseases

IT systems and IT solutions

A research group from Nagoya University in Japan has developed an artificial intelligence for analyzing cell images that uses machine learning to predict the therapeutic effect of drugs. Called in silico FOCUS, this new technology may aid in the discovery of therapeutic agents for neurodegenerative disorders such as Kennedy disease.

Space travel: Bone aging in fast forward

Physiotherapy / orthopaedic technology

Long periods in space damage bone structure irreparably in some cases and can make parts of the human skeleton age prematurely by up to 10 years. This is what a sport scientist at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has now discovered in conjunction with other researchers from Germany, Canada and the USA.

Weak handgrip strength may signal serious health issues

Physiotherapy / orthopaedic technology

Muscle strength is a powerful predictor of mortality that can quickly and inexpensively be assessed by measuring handgrip strength. In a new study, researchers developed cut-off points that apply to the general population, while also considering the correlation of handgrip strength with gender, body height, and aging to be used in medical practice.
