The future of personalized medicine is inevitably connected to the future of artificial intelligence, says Anshul Kundaje, assistant professor of genetics and of computer science at Stanford. In a talk at the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit partner event, “The Future of Artificial Intelligence,” Kundaje explains that sequencing the human genome is only the first step. The next step is to use machine learning to decode the genome and, ultimately, improve health care for everyone.
