Big data (or big data) in recent years, increasingly find application in various fields. Simply put, big data is a huge array of unstructured data that can be used for different purposes. Their treatment have a special program based on artificial intelligence and very often the output can get very important results. And recently, the Russian medical community together with the developers of AI systems have begun to launch large-scale project to create a national operator of biomedical data. In the future it will help the experts to put a more faithful and accurate diagnoses and improve the detection and treatment of diseases.
According to the publication “Kommersant”, the development is done on the basis of the Association of developers and users of artificial intelligence systems “national database of medical knowledge”. Medical nationwide network of big data will be created on a public-private partnership. In this case, the state will be responsible for the security of data, and the private sector for services for Analytics, diagnostics and treatment. As stated in an interview with the CEO of the Foundation for international medical cluster Mikhail Yugay,
“Application of artificial intelligence in medicine is an important technological trend that will improve disease diagnosis and to automate routine procedures, such as analysis of x-ray images and ultrasound data, and also to optimize the logistics of patients in clinics.”
At the moment, the key point is the property and security of information. All data collected in the mountains of big data will be depersonalized.
“If the data will be relatively expensive, the use will not start-UPS of domestic and foreign players in the field of artificial intelligence.” — said the member of the Supervisory Board of the Association “national database of medical knowledge” Igor Gorbunov.
It is assumed that the main users of the new system can become an insurance company. Now they do not have direct access to medical information, but the appearance of a depersonalized system that can turn.
“Even if the patient is not against such access, mediaobjectco ignores his right to dispose of personal information about their health. But when data is stored from the operator, the citizen has the right to give their analysis to build predictive models.” — told Vice-the President of the Russian Union of insurers Maxim Danilov.
However, not only in this sphere will be useful for big data. Information about the huge number of medical cases that can be handled by a powerful AI algorithms that will allow to systematize medical data and on their basis to develop the latest technology in diagnosis and treatment of diseases (as it now does IBM Watson). By making access to big data open so that you can enable any physician to “ask for help” to the AI and to improve not only their skills, but also the lives and health of patients.
