DBT calls for pre-proposals on Artificial Intelligence Applications for Affordable Healthcare - Big Data and Genomics

Department of Biotechnology Ministry of Science and Technology Government of India has announced the call for pre-proposals on Artificial Intelligence Applications for Affordable and Accessible Healthcare - Big Data and Genomics

The Last date for submission is 15th May, 2019.

Artificial intelligence (AI) aims to mimic human cognitive functions. It is bringing a paradigm shift to healthcare, powered by increasing availability of healthcare data and rapid progress of analytics techniques. Often requiring to perform repetitive tasks and analyzing millions of data - structured and unstructured, AI comes as a perfect way to deal with these challenges. Integration of AI approaches such as machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing to tackle the challenges of scalability and high dimensionality of data, better understanding of genomics and find patterns in the data that makes sense and to transform big data into clinically actionable knowledge is expanding.

Department of Biotechnology (DBT) announces this Call under the new initiative “Artificial Intelligence Applications for Affordable and Accessible Healthcare - Big Data and Genomics”.

The purpose of this ‘Call’ is to seek pre-proposals from Team of Researchers who intend to develop AI-based-solutions/tools to unlock clinically relevant information hidden in the massive amount of data, guided by relevant clinical questions, which in turn can assist clinical decisionmaking on disease prediction and prognosis evaluation, early detection and diagnosis, therapy choice, patient monitoring and care, etc.

The proposals will be considered for funding for 2/3/5 years. If the existing data/information is to be used, the proposal may be formulated for short duration.

Pre-Proposals may be submitted in the prescribed Format, clearly stating ‘Pre-Proposal on Artificial Intelligence Applications for Affordable and Accessible Healthcare - Big Data and Genomics’ in the subject line of the email and send it to bioinformatics@dbt.nic.in.

Your queries, if any, may be addressed to Dr. SuchitaNinawe, Adviser/Scientist ‘G’ at this same email ID. The closing date of the call is 15th May, 2019.
