Focus Areas

Research in the Mayo Clinic Biomedical Artificial General Intelligence Laboratory is focused on three research themes:

  • Causal medicine. The lab is enabling early detection of disease and novel drug discovery through the development and deployment of causal inference and discovery algorithms.
  • Augmented surgery. Research is aimed at enhancing clinician decision-making with scalable data integration, real-time feedback and predictive analytics.
  • Knowledge discovery. Dr. Kalantari's research team is exploring the "known unknowns" of medicine, cancer and complex diseases with causal reinforcement learning and Bayesian machine learning.
