Mount Sinai’s Icahn School of Medicine announced the launch of the Hamilton and Amabel James Center for Artificial Intelligence and Human Health, which will be staffed by about 40 principal investigators and 250 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and computer scientists. “Mount Sinai has consistently been at the forefront of advancing healthcare across medical disciplines and this initiative represents our next step forward in building on that legacy,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, president and CEO of the Mount Sinai Health System. He added, “We see the potential of artificial intelligence to radically transform the care that patients receive, and we want to shape and lead this effort.” In the area of imaging, Zahi Fayad, PhD, professor of medicine, cardiology, and diagnostic, molecular and interventional radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai said he sees “huge potential in using algorithms to automate the image interpretation and to acquire images much more quickly at high resolution—so that we can better detect disease and make it less burdensome for the patient.”
