Artificial intelligence (AI), which uses computational algorithms to provide actionable insight, is a rapidly evolving technology that can be potentially powerful in enhancing and synthesizing information available to a neurologist. There is a common misconception that “the purpose of AI will replace the neurologist”. In contrast, AI is simply another adjunctive tool that can assist the clinician in providing the best possible diagnostic, prognostic, or treatment recommendations. In particular, Alzheimer’s disease has been a recent domain of interest for AI implementation in the clinic setting. In this workshop, we will provide an overview of AI from the neurologist’s perspective and specific examples of AI implementation to improve the analysis of multimodal magnetic resonance imaging and genomic and proteomic analysis in clinical Alzheimer’s Disease.

Chair: Cassie Mitchell, PhD

Co-Chair: Beau Ances, MD, PhD, MSc


  • Become familiar with basic strengths and weaknesses of artificial intelligence technology, especially technology that can be used in the Alzheimer's clinic

  • Learn how to include existing AI technology, such as those in imaging or comics, to improve the care of patients

  • Look for overlapping opportunities to collaborate with and provide physician insight to technical engineers and scientists that are improving AI for the Alzheimer's clinic
