VentureBeat: Using digital twins in health care to stave off the grim reaper

VentureBeat caught up with NTT Research Medical & Health Informatics Lab director Dr. Joe Alexander, who elaborated on his view of the future of “bio digital twins,” which promise to improve precision medicine and bring digital transformation to the health care industry.

Japanese telecom giant NTT has launched a major initiative to improve digital health through precision medicine using digital twin technology. This project is part of NTT Research, a new R&D hub focused on basic research. The goal is to address long-term technological challenges with solutions that, once achieved, can positively impact wider ranges of businesses and many parts of our lives. These projects are not tied to specific product roll-out plans but could lead to much more significant long-term improvements than conventional incremental research conducted by enterprises.

The Science Times: NTT PHI Lab Partners with IRCN to Develop Novel AI-Based Neuro-Computing Technology

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation NTT’s research division has conducted a collaborative project with the University of Tokyo’s International Research Center for Neurointelligence or IRCN to examine and produce innovations based on coherent Ising machine technology.

The two organizations will push to develop coherent Ising machine or CIM processors that use algorithms that could provide solutions to the most difficult sets of problems. CIM will serve as an information processor, similar to the function of most AI devices, and will use photonic oscillator networks. University of Tokyo’s professor and IRCN Deputy Director Kazuyuki Aihara is the leader of the collaborative research with regard to artificial intelligence studies and algorithm-based models…
