Converging Blockchain and Next-Generation Artificial Intelligence Technologies to Decentralize and Accelerate Biomedical Research and Healthcare
The increased availability of digital healthcare data introduces new challenges both in data analysis and management. To speed up the biomedical research, new technologies are needed. To identify the outlook of next-generation artificial intelligence technologies and blockchain for integration on healthcare systems, we highlight recent advances in machine learning (deep learning in particular) for healthcare data analysis and drug discovery and also describe blockchain technology as a tool for data management. We discuss discriminative and generative approaches in deep learning and present considerations in the transfer learning techniques, including one and zero-shot learning. Our goal is to introduce emerging strategies that have a potential to integrate and decentralize biomedical data and advance health sciences.
