Title:

Advancements Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering

 

Abstract:

Advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in recent years have greatly impacted biomedical engineering advancements. With fast internet, powerful hardware, small sensors (internet of things), and small and low-cost storage, we can now overcome previous limitations to take full advantage of AI to assist us in solving various biomedical engineering problems.

CMKL University is a partnership between Carnegie Mellon University and King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. In 2020, we were supported by the Thailand’s PMUC (Program Management Unit Competitiveness) to establish an advanced AI Infrastructure called “APEX” (30 petaflop, 3 petaflop of storage). Over the past years we have utilized APEX to solve various problems including speech recognition, smart cities, as well as biomedical engineering applications. For example, researchers at KMITL utilized APEX to identify coronavirus mutation by analyzing the genomic sequences. In addition, we are now working on using AI to help assist radiofrequency cardiac ablation technique, a commonly used method to treat arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. AI can assist cardiologists in locating optimal ablation sites from analyses of electrical signals measured internally and/or externally. With continued advancements in the coming years, AI will play a pivotal role in future developments in biomedical engineering.
