Chronic Diseases Targeted with New AI Platform

San Diego-based AI biotech company is harnessing the power of wearable devices like smartwatches and fitness trackers to generate precise, individualized recommendations for patients to help manage chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. The mobile app technology was launched by Dr. Sujit Dey, PhD, a professor in the Department of Electricaland Computer Engineering and the director of the Center for WirelessCommunications at UC San Diego.

“AI-based health coaching can be more scalable and cost-effective,” Dr. Dey said. “Using individual models, we’re able to precisely pinpoint what the problem is.”
