Bridge Center

Propelling Biomedical Research

with Artificial Intelligence

The NIH Common Fund’s Bridge to Artificial Intelligence (Bridge2AI) program will propel biomedical research forward by setting the stage for widespread adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) that tackles complex biomedical challenges beyond human intuition. The mission of the Bridge Center is to complement the Bridge2AI Program, supporting the Integration, Dissemination, and Evaluation of its work products and teams.

A key step in this process is generating new “flagship” data sets and best practices for machine learning analysis.

Machine learning is a type of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that provides machines (like computers) the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience, without being explicitly programmed. The biomedical research community generates a wealth of data, but most of these data sets are not suitable for machine learning because they are incomplete.
