Interim assessment of medical informatics project DIFUTURE
"Data can save lives"
People suffering from rare diseases often face a major difficulty: Their illnesses occur so infrequently that only a handful of physicians are very familiar with them. This in turn makes the right diagnosis, not to mention successful treatment, very hard. Now researchers in the consortium "Data Integration for Future Medicine" (DIFUTURE) want to improve this situation using large volumes of data and Artificial Intelligence.
