Duke AI Health connects, strengthens, amplifies, and grows multiple streams of theoretical and applied research on artificial intelligence and machine learning at the University in order to answer the most urgent and difficult challenges in medicine and population health.

Designed as a multidisciplinary, campus-spanning initiative, AI Health harnesses expertise and insights across multiple schools, centers, and institutes at Duke to bring to bear the power of machine learning and related quantitative fields on medicine, healthcare delivery, and the health of individuals and communities.


“People have said that artificial intelligence will constitute the fourth industrial revolution and that data is like the electricity of the industrial revolution…We’re going to make it easier for people to simply ‘flip the switch’ and plug into the data science flowing through Duke, no matter what appliance or application they’re using.”
