Now ICAI is growing significantly. Elvan Kula, Lab Manager & PhD student of AI for Fintech Research lab, and Maarten de Rijke, Scientific Director of ICAI, talk about the challenges and ambitions within ICAI. Read the interview

e/MTIC AI-lab is the fourth ICAI lab with TU Eindhoven. In the field of healthcare, AI still has several issues to address. In hospitals, professionals are still hesitant to employ AI-based techniques because of lack of transparency, interpretability and clinical evidence. Through the e/MTIC AI-lab, AI will be made available to work in close collaboration with the clinical staff and MedTech industries to help improve personalized treatment. Read more
