The University of California, San Francisco targets data-fueled insights for clinical medicine with Intel® Xeon® processors.

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is using Intel® Xeon® Scalable family processors and BigDL* on Apache Spark* to advance artificial intelligence (AI) for clinical medicine. These technologies allow UCSF to:

  • Develop and train an AI model to identify a key precursor of osteoarthritis.
  • Broaden its researchers’ access to AI by deploying scalable, cost-effective infrastructure based on industry-standard technologies.
  • Enhance its researchers’ ability to solve clinical care challenges with a unified platform for AI and other analytics.
