Harnessing the Power of AI to Combat Obesity-Related Cardiovascular Disease

Trustworthy Tools to Predict Cardiovascular Disease

AI-POD is a transformative initiative set out to revolutionise obesity-related disease prediction for cardiovascular disease. By developing a novel, trustworthy AI-based risk score, and tools for clinical decision support, AI-POD aims to empower clinicians and patients alike, shaping treatment strategies, and driving the evidence-based healthcare innovation.

Our Objectives

Advanced AI Risk Prediction

Develop and validate a trustworthy AI-based risk score, integrating multidisciplinary parameters to accurately predict obesity-related CVD risks and complications for both clinicians and European citizens.

Personalized Clinical Decision Support

Implement a Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) delivering the AI-POD risk score, providing health professionals with an AI tool to support prevention and management of obesity.

Empowering Citizens with AI

Design an AI-POD Citizen App for obese individuals to monitor their health and lifestyle, promoting self-management and providing additional input data for the AI-POD risk score prediction model.

Pioneering CT Data Pipeline

Establish the first European network for cutting-edge CT technology, integrating high-end imaging, lab parameters, and clinical data to predict indicators for obesity-related CVD risks.

Real-World AI Validation

Conduct a multi-center proof-of-concept study to evaluate the performance of the AI-POD risk prediction score, CDSS, and Citizen App against current risk scores and guidelines.

Addressing Ethical Implications

Undertake a nuanced ethical analysis and stakeholder engagement process to ensure the AI-based risk prediction score and its implementation are fair, transparent, and morally permissible

Rethinking Obesity-Related Risks with Trustworthy AI

AI-POD is a transformative initiative set out to revolutionise obesity-related disease prediction for cardiovascular disease. By developing a novel, trustworthy AI-based risk score, and tools for clinical decision support, AI-POD aims to empower clinicians and patients alike, shaping treatment strategies, and driving the evidence-based healthcare innovation.

The AI-POD project unfolds its innovation across eight dynamic Work Packages over four years. Each Work Package is carefully designed to ensure seamless collaboration, from data access and optimized protocol development, to the creation of an AI-driven risk score and a comprehensive clinical decision support system.

We also prioritize exploring ethical implications and real-world validation of our solutions.

Wrapping up our journey, we focus on proactive dissemination of results and diligent project management.

This modular yet interconnected approach sets the stage for a significantly improved healthcare solution.
