UC San Diego is partnering with IBM Research to advance the use of artificial intelligence to enhance the quality of life and independence for aging populations.  The multi-year collaboration, which is creating the new Artificial Intelligence for Healthy Living Center at UC San Diego, was announced yesterday at a signing ceremony.  Chancellor Khosla said he’s excited to bring together the diverse strengths and disciplines of UC San Diego and IBM to promote critical research and applications for healthy aging and the human microbiome.  He noted the ultimate goal is to enable older adults to live independently longer and have a higher quality of life.  Read Chancellor Khosla’s blog entry on the IBM website.
