AI Seminar Series 2021: Finlay McAlister, Health Research Opportunities for Computer Scientists

The AI Seminar is a weekly meeting at the University of Alberta where researchers interested in artificial intelligence (AI) can share their research. Presenters include both local speakers from the University of Alberta and visitors from other institutions. Topics can be related in any way to artificial intelligence, from foundational theoretical work to innovative applications of AI techniques to new fields and problems.

On January 15, University of Alberta Professor (Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry) Finlay McAlister presented "Alberta Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research Support Unit - Health Research Opportunities for Computer Scientists".

In his talk, Dr. Finlay discusses the Alberta Strategy for Patient Oriented Research Support Unit (AbSPORU). Established in 2015 with funding from CIHR and Alberta Innovates, AbSPORU joined together the Universities of Alberta, Calgary, and Lethbridge, as well as Alberta Health Services and other stakeholders. The project has built capacity, capabilities, and partnerships for patient-oriented research (POR) in Alberta and worked to increase the quantity and quality of POR.
