  • Stanford scientists and their collaborators have devised an algorithm to predict the risk of a disease that, untreated, can lead to heart attack or stroke.

  • Data science website launched

    The online portal provides researchers with fast access to tools, data platforms, health-related databases and data-science experts.

  • How AI could help create antibiotics

    Researchers at Stanford have created an algorithm that, guided by previous research, lays out the DNA sequences most likely to align with antimicrobial properties.

  • Algorithm success in screening for disease

    In a matter of seconds, a new algorithm read chest X-rays for 14 pathologies, performing as well as radiologists in most cases, a Stanford-led study says.

  • EHRs for Fido

    A team led by scientists at the School of Medicine has developed an algorithm that can read the typed-out notes from veterinarians and predict specific diseases that the animal may have.
