Book chapter: Aging and Alzheimer's Disease
Artificial intelligence (AI) implies the use of a machine with limited human interference to model intelligent actions. It covers a broad range of research studies from machine intelligence for computer vision, robotics, and natural language processing to more theoretical machine learning algorithm design and, recently, “deep learning” development. The application of AI in medical fields is booming, including the use of AI in data collection, analysis, mechanistic prediction, to clinical disease diagnosis and drug development. In this chapter, we focus on the challenges in the studies of aging and the age-predisposed Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and summarize on how to use AI to help addressing these questions. We finally provide future perspectives on the use of AI in aging research and AD.
