The new American College of Radiology Data Science Institute® (ACR DSI) has launched the ACR AI-LAB™, a free software platform to enable radiologists to participate in the creation, validation, and use of health care artificial intelligence (AI). The initial version of ACR AI-LAB™ will be shown at the organization’s annual meeting being held on May 18-22 in Washington, D.C.
The ACR AI-LAB™ will provide radiologists with tools to develop AI algorithms at their own facilities and using their own data to meet their particular clinical needs securely behind institutional firewalls. ACR’s objective is that by combining ACR’s large member network, its institutional connectivity to facilities, and an industry community working to advance AI in health care, radiologists will be able to engage in all phases of the radiology AI development process.
In a press release, ACR stated that “ACR AI-LAB™ ‘democratizes’ AI by allowing for the direct participation of radiology departments throughout the AI development life-cycle. Through a freely available, open, vendor-neutral framework, radiologists will be able to learn about AI, contribute AI datasets, share AI algorithms, evaluate AI models, develop AI models and even combine these models though transfer learning and model ensembles to address their local clinical needs. The ACR AI-LAB™ platform will also support any future FDA initiatives that use real world data for local adaptive learning for algorithm improvement and monitoring of continuously learning algorithms.”Back To Top
