News form our full member Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins

While artificial intelligence suddenly seems to be everywhere, physician-scientists at Wilmer have been developing and evaluating AI tools for years. What started with one project by Neil Bressler, M.D., in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab (APL), has multiplied in number and complexity. Today, AI-related projects at Wilmer encompass everything from precision medicine to surgical training to drug discovery, with many patients and faculty members benefiting from the unique, collaborative environment at Johns Hopkins.

“What sets Wilmer apart from other academic eye centers is the breadth of projects using artificial intelligence,” says T.Y. Alvin Liu, M.D., director of Wilmer’s Precision Ophthalmology Center of Excellence. “We also have a deep bench of investigators involved in the entire life cycle of AI projects, from fundamental model design to translating data into useful AI clinical decision tools, and from implementation of FDA-approved AI tools on a health system level to the ethical and societal considerations of AI technology.”
