Abstract

Health, defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not just the absence of illness or infirmity, is a basic dimension of life, whether for individuals or for societies and nations. A complex set of policies and actions have been structured by nations and their governments, at different levels, to ensure the adequate prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and to achieve individual and social well-being. The cost of the systems associated with health care represents about 10% of the world GDP and, despite the progress of the last decades, it is still challenging to diagnose and treat numerous clinical conditions, and even to ensure that everyone has access to quality health care. Artificial intelligence (AI), defined as the simulation of human intelligence in machines, includes learning, reasoning and perception, and related technologies, has been a disruptive innovation in health and medicine. The focus of the Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence in Health (CIIA-Saúde) is the research and development of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and solutions to enable and demonstrate their potential to assist individuals and patients in self-care, health professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and health managers to plan preventive actions and care, optimizing the use of resources and broadly improving the health of the Brazilian population. It is a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional center integrating STEM and health areas with headquarters at UFMG, in association with 9 higher education institutions in the Southeast, South and North regions of the country, and in partnership with four companies in the areas of health, technology and education. The team consists of 130 researchers, 95 of which are CNPq productivity fellows (19 are level 1A). The health areas of the center are structured as five fundamental axes that include: 1) prevention and quality of life; 2) diagnosis, prognosis and screening; 3) therapeutic and personalized medicine; 4) health systems and management; and 5) epidemics and disasters. Associated with health axes and challenges, the focus of research in AI is concentrated on the following areas: I) Ethics and Human Values, II) Models and Algorithms, III) Data Management and Engineering, and IV) Computer Systems. The expected results of CIIA-Saúde may be grouped into research, innovation and training of human resources, including the publication of scientific articles in prestigious national and international journals and conferences, the development of proof of concept and prototype solutions, together with health companies and institutions, as well as the transfer of technology and know-how to the market (with the support of CTIT-UFMG); and the training of doctors and masters. Education and knowledge dissemination actions for elementary and high school students are also planned, including short courses and educational videos, as well as a lato sensu graduate course (360h) for health professionals and short courses for the general population. The Center also plans an intense international activity, through collaboration with researchers and institutions of excellence in advanced research. CIIA-Saúde will have a lean administrative structure including a Board of Directors, International Scientific Committee, Executive Committee, Technical-Scientific Coordination and Administrative Secretariat, and will have the support of UFMG's Research and Development Foundation (Fundep) for administrative and financial management.
