AI for breakfast: AI-Mind - Artificial Intelligence for Dementia Prevention

Read more

How can AI contribute to prevent dementia? The EU-funded project AI-Mind aims to reduce the disease’s burden by developing novel, AI-based tools to support healthcare professionals in their diagnosis and offering timely interventions to patients. Ira Haraldsen (MD, Psychiatrist; PhD) coordinates AI-Mind and will be talking about this project in this breakfast seminar - AI for breakfast.


28. January.

Time: 08:00 - 09:30


More than 100,000 people have dementia in Norway and around 50 million worldwide, and this is set to double during the next 20 years. 

AI-Mind is a 5-year project funded by Horizon 2020, with the goal of facilitating a paradigm shift in clinical practice. The project started in March 2021. AI-Mind will create intelligent digital tools for screening of brain connectivity and dementia risk estimation in people affected by mild cognitive impairment.

During its lifecycle, two new artificial intelligence-based digital tools will be developed by AI-Mind. The AI-Mind Connector will identify dysfunctional brain networks, and the AI-Mind Predictor will assess dementia risk using data from the Connector, advanced cognitive tests, and genetic biomarkers. These two tools will be integrated into an intelligent diagnostics platform to identify both brain network disturbances and dementia risk, creating personalized patient reports for further intervention recommendations.
