NIH to Provide Health Care Data Through AI Steering Committee

The National Institutes of Health will work with the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation in 2024 to advance the NIH’s artificial intelligence efforts.

According to Susan Gregurick, associate director for data science at the NIH, the three agencies will launch the National AI Research Resource steering committee, which will provide data sets and AI capabilities to researchers interested in using the emerging technology for various applications. Gregurick shared that under the NAIRR, the NIH will provide a wide array of health care data, including imaging and immunology, chronic diseases and COVID-19.

Gregurick added that the NIH and the NSF would provide AI-enabled infrastructure and other capabilities and materials for AI model development, GovCIO Media & Research reported Thursday.

The U.S. government has been constantly pushing AI since the start of 2023, focusing on various applications, including health care.

In mid-December, the White House and other government and private-sector health care organizations expanded an initiative to protect entities from AI-related risks. The Department of Health and Human Services and others involved in the initiative are committed to developing a risk management framework for tracking AI-enabled applications and creating AI solutions to optimize health care delivery and health equity.
