The research theme on AI and healthcare aims at applying some of the IIIA AI techniques to the field of healthcare. Specifically, it is focused on the design of novel algorithms to provide solutions able to incorporate advanced Descriptive, Diagnostic, Predictive, and Prescriptive capabilities to Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS).

The current trend of moving towards a more Predictive, Preventive, Personalized, and Participatory medicine, known as 4P Medicine, is changing the healthcare paradigm. Digital technologies are playing an important role in this 4P paradigm generating a volume and variety of information never seen before. Artificial Intelligence is contributing by providing tools for the management and exploitation of this huge amount of data.
The prescription of highly personalized treatments increases the complexity of the knowedge and decisions to be considered. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning aims at developing innnovative decision support systems to speed up the discovery and consolidation of new evidence.
