IBM and Boston Children Hospital Announces Collaboration to Apply IBM's Watson Cognitive Platform
Nov 10 15
IBM and Boston Children's Hospital announced that they intend to collaborate to apply IBM's Watson cognitive platform to help clinicians identify possible options for the diagnosis and treatment of rare pediatric diseases. In an initial project focused on kidney disease, Watson will analyze the massive volumes of scientific literature and clinical databases on the Watson Health Cloud to match genetic mutations to diseases and help uncover insights that could help clinicians identify treatment options. In the new collaboration, Watson will be trained in nephrology by reading related medical literature and aggregating information on causative mutations for steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS), a rare genetic form of kidney disease. Then, experts at Boston Children's Hospital intend to feed genomic sequencing data from retrospective patients into Watson to further train the system. The goal is to create a cognitive system that can help clinicians interpret a child's genome sequencing data, compare this with medical literature and quickly identify anomalies that may be responsible for the unexplained symptoms.
