Big Data for Better Hearts

The genomics revolution has brought personalized medicine to cancer and rare diseases; an EU-funded initiative aims to bring cardiovascular care into the genomics era. The €19 million project, funded by the EU’s Innovative Medicines Initiative, was launched in order to apply the power of genomics and big data to cardiovascular health.

The project is a recognition that in the face of the enormous burden of heart failure, atrial fibrillation and acute coronary syndrome, the field lags behind other major disease areas in using genomic and big data to improve patient outcomes.

Artificial Intelligence in Precision Cardiovascular Medicine

The rapidly growing field of Artificial Intelligence (AI)—a field of computer science that seeks to perform and directly mimic tasks that generally require human intelligence—has developed a series of techniques that have been applied in cardiovascular medicine. Designed to enhance patient care, improve cost-effectiveness, and reduce readmission and mortality rates, these machine-learning techniques have been increasingly used for cardiovascular disease diagnosis and prediction.
