Integrating people, teams, programs, approaches, and outputs across the Bridge2AI program is a major BRIDGE Center activity.
Programmatic integration requires the intentional development and nurturing of a strong Bridge to Artificial Intelligence (Bridge2AI) community. While individual Data Generating Projects (DGP) can operate independently to generate AI-ready datasets, they must work together to realize the Bridge2AI goals of establishing rules of practice to guide inclusive, trustworthy, and successful use of AI across biomedicine and behavioral research.
Through good governance, clear expectations, shared language and practices, transparency and accountability, and inclusive practices, the BRIDGE Center ensures that the different DGPs can amalgamate into a unified community of practice. Each BRIDGE Center Core actively engages corresponding DGP modules to coalesce around standards and guidelines for their work, with the ultimate goal to iteratively develop, implement, assess, and disseminate them. The BRIDGE Center aims to create an evidence-based suite of standards, practices, and training to realize trustworthy biomedical AI together.
The six Cores of the BRIDGE Center are:
