What can ubiquitous radio waves do for healthcare?
Dina Katabi, the principal investigator for AI and health at the MIT Jameel Clinic, is at the forefront of data-driven healthcare. Her research in radio wave data transmission has led to cutting-edge early-detection technology and wireless devices for monitoring patients with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. Dina speak about the capabilities of AI to decipher continuous data of dynamic diseases.
"All of [these improvements] depend on clinical data," she says. "We are going to collect data, clinical data from patients continuously in their homes, track the symtpoms, the evolution of those symptoms and process this data with machine learning so that we can get insight before problems occur. And we can react to it ... intervene early, avoid hospitalisation and improve outcomes for patients."
