A primary mission of EOSC-Life is to make data resources from life science RIs ‘FAIR’ and publish them in the EOSC in accordance with guidelines and standards. The overall goal is to drive the evolution of the RI repository infrastructure for EOSC and integrate life science RI repositories.
Data in human medical records, pathology reports and images, however, are stored on separate databases in different hospital departments and labs. This raises challenges regarding how these data are shared effectively between RIs and how they are shared at all under the GDPR.
Now, the EATRIS institute San Raffaele University Hospital in Milan has reported that they are working with Microsoft to access patient data and use it to teach machines how to predict patient outcomes and help clinical decision-making in the San Raffaele Project.
By bringing all relevant clinical data together in one system and combining new patient data with data collected in the past, Microsoft experts, doctors and researchers from San Raffaele University Hospital will tackle specific clinical AI challenges by developing tailored algorithms.
