Precision Medicine and Artificial Intelligence: The Perfect Fit for Autoimmunity covers background on artificial intelligence (AI), its link to precision medicine (PM), and examples of AI in healthcare, especially autoimmunity. The book highlights future perspectives and potential directions as AI has gained significant attention during the past decade. Autoimmune diseases are complex and heterogeneous conditions, but exciting new developments and implementation tactics surrounding automated systems have enabled the generation of large datasets, making autoimmunity an ideal target for AI and precision medicine.

More and more diagnostic products utilize AI, which is also starting to be supported by regulatory agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Knowledge generation by leveraging large datasets including demographic, environmental, clinical and biomarker data has the potential to not only impact the diagnosis of patients, but also disease prediction, prognosis and treatment options.

About IAG, Image Analysis Group

Our goal is to accelerate novel drug development by using the right analytical tools and modern trial infrastructure. We take a broader view on the assets’ development and bring expertise in study design, execution, and commercialization. As needed, we deploy AI, Machine Learning, and smart image analysis methods to ensure the speed and cost-effectiveness of clinical programs. IAG’s team supports investors and biotech executive teams with deploying the right strategies for early efficacy assessments, objective response prediction and critical analysis of advanced treatment manifestations. Thus, lowering the investment risks into advanced therapies while helping to accelerate study outcomes.

About the Editor: Michael Mahler

Michael Mahler received his Ph.D. from the institute of molecular genetics at the University of Heidelberg (Germany). During his Ph.D. thesis, Michael Mahler worked at The Scripps Research Institute in the laboratory of Prof. Mike Pollard and Prof. Eng Tan. He is currently Vice President of Research at Inova Diagnostics. His research is focused on the B-cell autoimmune response in autoimmune diseases and the discovery of novel autoantigens which resulted in more than 300 peer reviewed journal articles as well as several patents. In addition, he works on the development and characterization of novel diagnostic assays for the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases. In the scientific community, he serves as Editor of different scientific journals and as reviewer for more than 40 journals. Michael Mahler became exposed to and interested in Artificial Intelligence as well as Precision Medicine and as a consequence, co-founded the Precision Medicine in Autoimmunity (PMA) (www.precisionmedicineautoimmunity.org) conference.
