Big Data and AI Driven Opioid Epidemic Research

We are working on using large scale electronic health records for opioid epidemic research. Some recent preliminary results are published as follows.

We also explore social media to understand the opioid epidemic. Read our recent work on machine learning based detection of suicidality among opioid users on Reddit.

January 9, 2020: We are very grateful for ALS Association to fund us on building EyeCanDo, an eye gaze-based technology using Apple TrueDepth camera to enable communication for ALS patients.

Lack of mobility and communication due to disability seriously limits the personal freedom of ALS patients and can lead to a low quality of life. The progressive loss of independence and connection to the world affects them and their caregivers physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. EyeCanDo is an eye gaze-based technology built on top of Apple smart devices (iPad and iPhone) to enable communications for ALS patients.
The project is in collaboration with Dr. Xiaojun Bi.

August 1, 2019: We are awarded $1.14M from National Cancer Institute to develop methods and software for 3D computional digital pathology.

The project "Computational pathology software for integrative cancer research with three-dimensional digital slides" will develop AI, computer vision and big spatial data technologies to advance cancer research and potentially assist pathologists to improve the efficiency and efficacy for clinical diagnosis. In particular, the work will revolutionize digital pathology from 2D to 3D, which provides a 3D “GIS” like map of human tissues. The project is in collaboration with Georgia State University.
